ISRAELI SECURITY FORCES ARREST
LADY HEZ B'ALLAH AGENT IN JERUSALEM

Maariv News Service: Security forces have arrested Fa’ada Said Abdullah, 28-year old divorced Palestinian nurse on suspicion of being a Hezbollah agent.

The suspect, who works for the Red Crescent has confirmed that she has, over the past several months, acted as a liaison with Hezbollah on behalf of Haled Shwaish, a wanted terrorist who is a senior commander in the Tanzim, a terrorist organization that is affiliated with Arafat’s Fatah party. Shwaish is based in the muk’ata, Arafat’s presidential compound in Ramallah.

She used her Red Crescent credentials to travel abroad, including Lebanon, where she would meet with Hezbollah personnel, acting as a courier between the Lebanese terrorist organization and Ramallah.

Security forces have evidence supporting their suspicions that Arafat knew about these activities, and approved them.

During her interrogation she said that Shwaish is trying to organize a mega suicide bombing attack, similar to the ones Hezbollah has carried out in Lebanon in the past.
