The IDF in September arrested Khaled Amsah, 43, the Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades operative who was responsible for the 2004 attack on an Erez crossing checkpoint, it was revealed on Tuesday.
The army reported that Amsah, arrested in the northern Gaza village of Beit Hanun, had also admitted during his interrogation that he'd planned to send his son to perpetrate a suicide bombing, and that he was involved in firing Kassam rockets at Israel.
The attack on the outpost left four IDF reservists dead and four wounded.
