Security forces announced on Sunday the arrest of a Gazan ISIS-affiliated operative as he tried to pass into Israel via the Erez land crossing.
The Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency named the suspect as 27-year-old Ihab Abu Nahal, from Gaza City. It added that he was arrested in late July, and that his ultimate destination was Qatar, where he wished to take part in an employment program for Gazan teachers.
The terror suspect “took part in several attacks against the IDF during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza last year,” the Shin Bet said, as well as other attacks.
“Abu Nahal was a member of the Islamist faction that is affiliated with ISIS, and which is known as ‘Unity of God.’ This faction belongs to the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) in the Gaza Strip,” the Shin Bet said. The faction is a part of the PRC’s military wing, known in Arabic as the Al-Nasser Salah al-Deen Brigades.
During questioning, Abu Nahal said he began his activities in Hamas’s military wing, where he received training in combat, camouflage, how to set up lookouts. He later allegedly took part in tunnel digging activities.
The suspect then left Hamas to join the PRC, according to the Shin Bet.
In 2010, Abu Nahal was allegedly chosen by the PRC’s leaders to carry out a suicide bombing against Israeli targets on the Israel – Egypt border, and received intensive training for his mission.
