The Lebanese-based organization is believed to have employed Palestinian contractors, one of whom was Muhammad Shada– an Islamic Jihad operative known for his ties with Hizbullah, Shada left the Jihad in the past, crossing over to Fatah lines only to return to Jihad ranks several years after that. He also reportedly converted form Sunni Islam – like most, of not all, Palestinians – to Shia Islam, which is the religious denomination of Hizbullah. According to the Palestinians' leads, Dheim carried out the attack under Shada's orders, after the latter received orders and funding for Hizbullah. The Palestinian security establishment is also looking into the possibility that a Fatah operative from Bethlehem was also involved in the attack. Sowohl Ausführung als auch Ziel entspricht dem "traditionellem Vorgehen" des Islamic Jihad.
