10 years later: Muslim terrorist who murdered 2 IDF soldiers caught after trying to enter Israel for medical procedure
A decade after First Sergeant Ilan Sviatkovsky and the late Major Eliraz Peretz were murdered in a shooting attack in southern Gaza, the Shin Bet has arrested one of the Muslim terrorists involved in the attack.
The Shin Bet cleared for publication that Muslim terrorist Abdullah Dama, 38, a resident of Rafah in southern Gaza, was arrested after arriving at the Erez crossing to enter Israel for Tel Hashomer Medical Center, to donate bone marrow to his brother, who is hospitalized there.
During his interrogation by the Shin Bet in cooperation with the Israel Police, it emerged that Dama was involved in the terror attack that took place on March 26, 2010, on the Gaza border, near Nirim and Ein Hashlosha.
Dama confessed his role in the terror attack, which was planned as early as September 2008 and was carried out by the Islamic Jihad.
Peretz, -the son of Miriam Peretz, whose two sons were killed in combat against Muslim terrorists-, and Sviatkovsky were murdered during the attack after their force, from the Golani’s 12th Battalion, was rushed to the border fence after several Muslim terrorists were spotted placing bombs.
They were attacked with mortar shells and gunfire after reaching the scene.
During the gunfight, a grenade in Peretz’s vest was hit by a bullet and exploded.
According to the Shin Bet, in addition to Dama’s involvement in the terror attack, he also served as a ‘commanding officer’ in the Shahada al-Aqsa terror group.
An indictment was filed against him in the Beer Sheva District Court on charges of murder of IDF soldiers, membership in a terror group and managing a terror group.
