Israel captures second al Qaeda operative Friday - in IDF raid of Hizme village northeast of Jerusalem

A Palestinian, he was recently recruited by the fundamentalist Islamist organization for terrorist attacks in the Israeli capital. A Saudi national, Abdul Rahman Al-Atwi, 36, who was first assigned an operation in Cairo, has been jailed in Israel for ten months. He was picked up at the Allenby Bridge crossing from Jordan when he tried to reach the West Bank.

Last week, Jordanian intelligence briefed Palestinian Authority chairman Abu Mazen on the al Qaeda networks established in the Gaza Strip and West Bank, which call themselves Salahedin’s Victory Brigades. He was warned that they had taken to using Palestinian women as couriers for moving instructions, weapons and explosives, a method employed by Abu Musab al Zarqawi in Iraq.

This may be just the beginning of what Israeli and Jordanian intelligence officials have been fearing for some time...
the spread of al-Qaeda into Jordan and Israel with the help of the Palestinians.
