This is horrifying to even think about:
Israel today said it had foiled a plot to use a bomb laced with HIV-infected blood in a suicide attack during the Passover holiday.
Israel’s Shin Beth security service today said militants had been planning to dispatch a suicide bomber from the northern West Bank town of Qalqilya to Tel Aviv to carry out the attack during the week-long Jewish holiday which ended yesterday.
The plot was exposed after the arrest of a member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a radical offshoot of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s Fatah movement, in the northern West Bank city of Nablus, a Shin Beth spokeswoman said.
‘The terrorist cell apparently planned to obtain contaminated blood from some Palestinian hospitals but they had not passed the preliminary stage in their preparations,’ she said.”
