Head of Islamic Jihad: Security fence very successful

Wednesday, November 15, 2006 |  by Staff Writer
Secretary General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist organization spoke with the Lebanese al-Manar television station and said that the security fence built by Israel has made it very difficult for his people to conduct attacks against the Jewish state.

“The fence is a barrier and has completely changed the situation on the ground,” said Ramadan `Abdallah Shalah, secretary general of the terror group which operates in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, but is headquartered in Syria.

Shalah referred to the proposals of a long-term “hudnah” (ceasefire) and said it necessitates a deep examination, and he is not sure that what was published in the Israeli media about Hamas’s position was accurate. “Hamas didn’t get elected to see the resistance buried,” he said.

He also glorified the suicide bombing last week in Gaza where a young woman blew herself up near Israeli forces, without causing any injuries.

Shalah emphasized that the situation on the ground dictates the operations of such attacks, as the strategic decision is to continue with them. He admitted that the security fence built by Israel makes it very difficult on his organization to perpetrate attacks against Israel and has completely changed the situation on the ground.
