Taking advantage of Israeli medical care....

A 21-year-old female suicide bomber.
A female suicide bomber who planned to blow up at the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba on Monday, the same hospital where she received treatment for burns in the past, was caught at the Erez terminal crossing wearing explosives stitched to her underwear. Security forces were alerted when the biometric screener located at the terminal crossing, revealed that Wafa Samir Ibrahim Bas,21, of the Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza, was wearing explosives.
My god...and she wanted to bomb the hospital that helper her in the past! But, here's what makes this even worse:
Bas suffered severe injuries when a gas canister exploded in her house while she was cooking last year. In the framework of humanitarian assistance offered by Israel to the Palestinians, she was admitted to the Soroka Medical Center and treated between last December and January this year for burns. Taking advantage of the fact that she had access into Israel and was due to be seen by doctors at the hospital on Monday, she agreed to a request by Al Aksa Brigade commanders in Gaza to don the explosives and blow up as instructed, in a "crowded area in the hospital."

Sources in the Shabak said that before Bas set out this morning her dispatchers removed a metal plate disk that had been placed in her arm as part of medical treatment. They removed it so that she wouldn't set off the metal detector at the terminal crossing.

Security officials noted that this is not the first time terror organizations recruit Palestinians to launch suicide bomb attacks on their behalf, taking advantage of the special permission they received on humanitarian grounds to enter Israel for medical treatment.
