Al Qaida Attack on Israel blocked by Jordan

(Maariv - Hebrew only): Five al-Qaeda terrorists attempted to infiltrate into Israel last Friday to carry out an attack, according to a report Wednesday on Israel TV Channel 10.

Shots were heard on the Jordanian side of the border near Kibbutz Kfar Ruppin in the Bet Shean valley. According to the report, Jordanian forces shot one infiltrator near the border, who then led them to four others, all al-Qaeda activists.

Israeli security forces believe it is only a matter of time until al-Qaeda carries out an attack in Israel.
