Israeli Media: New generation more dangerous, more experienced
Israeli media talk about the expertise the occupation is seeing in the new Palestinian generation of fighters, warning that it is a generation they "know anything about, and the greatest danger comes especially from small groups like these."
The former occupation police chief in occupied Al-Quds, Arieh Amit, confirmed on Wednesday, that "the new generation of Palestinians is a different generation, and is familiar with organizational work," commenting on the separate explosions that rocked two bus stations in occupied Al-Quds and near the "Ramot" junction this morning.
"This generation of Palestinians knows how to work, and it has more expertise and is a more educated generation," Amit said in an interview with the Israeli Channel 12, noting that "there is a Palestinian generation whom we know nothing about, and the greatest danger comes especially from small groups like these."
Israeli media announced, this morning, that two explosions occurred at a bus station in occupied Al-Quds, resulting in the death of one person and the injury of dozens.
The media stated that the operation was "an attempt to launch a double attack."
There is "a great fear of carrying out another operation in Jerusalem [occupied al-Quds]," the media added, noting that, "what happened was a very coordinated double operation, and there is a fear of other bombs in the streets of Jerusalem."
Preliminary assessments in the security and military establishment say that "the attack had been planned for a long time, and initial suspicions indicate that the cell is familiar with the area in which the attacks were carried out."
According to the suspicions, the perpetrators of the operation first "made sure that there were as many Israelis as possible at the bus station, and then detonated the explosive device in the first place from a distance."
Israeli Media: There is an ability to carry out similar operations to the one in Al-Quds
"The type of explosives and the adjacent places indicate that the perpetrators of the operation knew the area, and that they had collected prior information," Israeli Channel 12 said, adding that they have the knowledge and the ability to manufacture explosives.
Answering a question on whether or not the Israeli occupation knows the identity of the perpetrators, military affairs correspondent for the Israeli Channel 12, Nir Dvory, said, "Until now, the police do not know their identities,” noting that “the ability of the perpetrators to manufacture explosives is an essential information for the security and military establishment's investigation.”
"In the past year, the Shin Bet thwarted 34 attempts to place explosive devices and carry out attacks with explosive devices throughout Israel," Israeli media pointed out, explaining that this means that "the motivation is there, and the ability is also there, but they were thwarted. As for now, they have succeeded."
Talking about the decrease in operations during the World Cup, Israeli media said that "this has been the case throughout recent years, but this is the first year in which we see the opposite."
