Palestinian terrorist deliberately murders two Israelis

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Palestinian terrorist has murdered two Israelis:

A Palestinian terrorist from the village of Khan Yunis infiltrated the Gush Katif settlement of Rafah Yam in the Gaza Strip, killing two residents.

Amos Sa'adah, 52, from Rafah Yam, and Asaf Sefira, 18, from B'dollah were killed. At least one other Israeli was lightly injured. He was taken to Soroka Hospital in Beersheba.

The military wing of Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack. The terrorist had been a community employee for several months..

These almost daily deliberate murders of Israeli women and children will probably not be mentioned in your local news. Yet Palestinians from the Islamic Jihad and Hamas continue their murderous terrorist activities, which are not only homicide/suicide bombings. This time, the Palestinian murderer was an employee who decided he would kill his Israeli boss.

A Palestinian terrorist from the village of Khan Yunis infiltrated the Gush Katif settlement of Rafah Yam in the Gaza Strip, killing two residents.

Amos Sa'adah, 52, from Rafah Yam, and Asaf Sefira, 18, from B'dollah were killed. At least one other Israeli was lightly injured. He was taken to Soroka Hospital in Beersheba.

The military wing of Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack. The terrorist had been a community employee for several months.

In an interview with Israel Radio, the commander of the southern region Col. Pinky Zoar retold Wednesday morning's events.

He said the terrorist, from the Palestinian Authority controlled village of Khan Yunis, arrived at the Rafah Yam fields around 8 a.m. Wednesday with a number of other Palestinian workers. The perpetrator broke away from the crowd of field workers and opened fire.

He then ran to another section of the community and shot his employer, who was sitting in his office, killing him, Zoar told the radio.

Soon after, the terrorist ran out of the community entrance and onto the street. According to Zoar, an Israeli motorist attempted to stop the terrorist, but
the terrorist shot at the driver and the two entered a gunbattle.

IDF troops and community guards arrived on the scene, and they succeeded in shooting and killing the terrorist, ending the escapade, Zoar said.

Later, soldiers discovered hand grenades, believed to have been in the terrorists possession, Israel Radio reported. The IDF neutralized the grenades
without incident.

Troops scoured the area in search of other terrorists.

Israel Radio reported that Sa'adah had discovered one of his workers in possession of a bomb about one year ago. The explosive device exploded, but
neither Sa'adah or other residents were injured by the explosion.

In other news, Palestinians fired three mortar shells at a Jewish community in Gush Katif Tuesday night. According to Israel Radio, no one was injured and there was no damage.

Also overnight and early Wednesday morning, Palestinians opened fire on soldiers positioned in Gush Katif and in Rafah, on the Egypt-Gaza border. Noone was injured in any of these incidents, the radio reported.
