An international arrest warrant for a terrorist who orchestrated a Jerusalem bombing that killed fifteen people has been dropped.
The International Police Organisation, commonly known as Interpol, has apparently abandoned its pursuit of Jordanian terrorist Ahlam Tamimi, who orchestrated the 2001 bombing of the Sbarro pizzeria in Jerusalem in which fifteen people were killed, including seven children and a pregnant woman. Another 130 people were injured. The attack is considered to have been the work of the antisemitic genocidal terrorist group, Hamas.
In a letter published on 8th March in Arabic-language media, the law-enforcement organisation said that Ms Tamimi was no longer “subject to Interpol notice.” Ms Tamimi, who has lived in Jordan since being released from an Israeli prison as part of a prisoner exchange in 2011, also appears to have been removed from Interpol’s red-notice “most-wanted” list.
Ms Tamimi’s husband, the convicted terrorist Nizar Tamimi, triumphantly confirmed the news on his Facebook page, saying: “After a legal battle …the defence for freed prisoner Ahlam Al-Tamimi achieved the erasure of the red notice…With this legal victory, her name was removed from the wanted list of Interpol. Praise be to God.”
Mr Tamimi, who was deported from Jordan last year and now resides in Qatar, added: “Our struggle will continue until her file is completely closed.”
