[NOT IN RED CROSS OFFICES] Senior Islamic Jihad terrorist arrest while hiding in the offices of the International Solidarity Movement in Jenin

Senior Islamic Jihad terrorist arrest while hiding in the offices of the
International Solidarity Movement in Jenin

IDF SPOKESPERSON ANNOUNCEMENT 28 March 2003

[IMRA: The IDF Spokeperson's Office told IMRA that the source of the
confusion in earlier reports that claimed the terrorists were caught in Red
Cross offices was that a number of organizations are located in the same
building.]

Shadi Sukiya, a senior member of the Islamic Jihad in Jenin who was involved
in the planning of several thwarted suicide attacks, was arrested by IDF
troops while hiding in the offices of the International Solidarity Movement.

The IDF was conducting searches since last night for Sukiya in a complex of
buildings. During the searches, an assistant to Sukiya surrendered, and 2
Kalashnikov rifles were founded. Based on intelligence information, the
forces searched a building housing international organizations (Physicians
without Borders, the Red Cross and the International Solidarity Movement).
Sukiya was found hiding in the offices of the International Solidarity
Movement. A handgun was also found.

Two foreign women activists of the organization, helped Sukiya hide from IDF
forces.

It should be noted that this is not the first time that terrorists make use
of offices and property of international and humanitarian organizations to
carry out terror attacks and hide from the IDF forces. Such behavior puts
the organizations and their staff and property at risk.

Sukiya, one of the senior Islamic jihad terrorists in Jenin, was involved in
several thwarted suicide attacks including a planned suicide bus bombing in
northern Israel in September another suicide attack in October, and planned
suicide attack with an explosive suitcase in February.

Suykia was also involved in planting explosive devices and shooting attacks
against IDF troop and Jewish communities in the Jenin area.
