Report: Attack planned by PRC leader Abu Samhadana.
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz set up an investigative team on Monday to examine the circumstances of the previous day's attack at the Kerem Shalom crossing that left two soldiers dead and one kidnapped.
Halutz appointed former National Security Council head Giora Eiland to head the team. The chief of staff gave the team until July 10 to submit its findings.
On Monday morning, the London-based Arabic newspaper Al Hayat reported that the attack had been planned by Popular Resistance Committees leader Jamal Abu Samhadana.
Samhadana was killed on June 9 in an IAF air strike. IDF sappers performed a controlled explosion on the tunnel that was used in the attack.
