The brains behind the terror cell, Ahmad Najar, a Hamas operative, was not among the suspects arrested. He was imprisoned in Israel several times in the past, most recently from December 2003 until October 2011 over his involvement in a shooting attack that claimed the lives of six Israelis. After his release as part of the Shalit deal and expulsion to Gaza, Najar moved to Jordan, where he has been working to organize and fund terror attacks.
Im Rahmen des Shalit- Gefangenenaustausches wurden insgesamt 1027 palästinensische Häftlinge freigelassen, die unter anderem für den Tod von etwa 200 Israelis verantwortlich sind, so auch der obige Ahmad Najar, der für die Ermordung von Malachi Rosenfeld vor einigen Wochen verantwortlich gemacht werden konnte.
