Hamas terrorist Ahlam Tamimi recounted in a TV interview the roles and missions she had performed in a Hamas terror cell, which had carried out terror attacks in Israel in the early 2000s. She told the interviewer how she had located schools and shops as potential bombing targets and how she had planted a bomb in a Jerusalem supermarket. Tamimi also drove the suicide bomber who carried out the 2001 Jerusalem Sbarro restaurant suicide bombing, in which 15 Israelis and tourists were killed. Tamimi told the interviewer that she had used her journalist union card to get in and out of Jerusalem and that she had surveilled civilian targets – such as schools and restaurants – in an effort to maximize casualties. The two-part interview was aired on Kuwaiti channel Iqraa TV, and was posted on YouTube on June 27-28, 2012.
