One of the Palestinian terror operatives who kidnapped Cpl. Gilad Schalit in a cross-border raid near Kerem Shalom last June has been arrested, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced Friday afternoon, lifting a gag order.Has he been cooperative with the authorities since then, and given them any clues to Shalit's whereabouts? So far, there's no way to tell here.
Muhammad Salameh Abed Zufi, 30, was apprehended in Rafah on June 9.
The Shin Bet said that Zufi, who admitted during his interrogation that he had photographed the Kerem Shalom raid, also said he had involved in a 2002 raid on the "Africa" outpost in the same area on the Gaza border. In that raid, an IDF officer and three Beduin trackers were killed.
In addition to the raids on IDF outposts, Zufi was also involved in other attacks that wounded soldiers and launching Kassam rockets at Israel from the Gaza Strip.
