Authorities announced Thursday evening that Daud Zubeidi, the brother of Al Aksa Martyrs' Brigades commander Zakaria Zubeidi, was arrested three months ago during an exchange of fire with IDF troops. Zubeidi confessed to investigators that he was planning to kidnap an Israeli woman from the village of Ya'abed, near Jenin. The woman would come to the village routinely to buy charcoals for barbecue and Zubeidi was planning to exploit his knowledge of her routine to hijack her, he said.
