Israeli police force has arrested several family members of Basma Awad al-Nabari, the 16-years-old terrorist who attacked a Border Police base on April 4th. Among those held are the parents of the shooter, questioned by the police all night, according to news reports. Police forces suspect both parents and uncle either knew about girl’s plan to attack or even assisted her. At the moment, it seems investigators have no facts at hand corroborating those allegations.

During search of teenager’s house, police found several notebooks, where young teen described her wish to become a martyr, because of Israel’s operation in Gaza.

In the meanwhile, residents of the village of Hura, inside the Green Line and a hometown to Basma, reluctant to believe the teen was a terrorist. Excuses range from BP soldiers misidentifying Basma – who arrived to file a complaint – to her being a quiet girl who never expressed any political opinions. Basma’s uncle stated that the incitement material found in her room was ‘merely poetry’ downloaded from the Internet. However, during search by police investigators, several bullets were discovered in uncle’s room and many items of incitement literature found around the house, especially in Basma’s room. Court remanded all three for between 24 and 96 hours.
