Fateh Denies Involvement in December\'s Tel Aviv Bombing
A senior Fateh official in the West Bank said Monday that the organization's leadership had not ordered its activists to carry out attacks against Israelis within the borders of Israel, denying claims that the organization was behind the Tel Aviv bus bombing that injured at least 13 people in December, according to Haaretz newspaper.
AFP reported Sunday that Israeli security services have arrested a Jordanian who was recruited by Fateh's military wing as a prime suspect in the attack.
Abdullah Abu Jaber, 25, was arrested the day after the bombing attack on December 28, which left 13 injured, Israeli police said in a statement quoted by the agency.
