Note: Salah, a resident of Gaza, had been sought since 1994 for the murder of an Israeli citizen. In 2004, he was recruited by the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades to murder another Israeli and transfer the body to the terrorist organization for bargaining purposes. He was arrested before the planned meeting and murder were due to take place. He is serving a life sentence.
