Israel Ceases, Palestinians Fire: Two More Israelis Slain by Terrorists
by Yated Ne'eman Staff

Dan Yehuda, 35 Hy"d, of Homesh, and Doron Zisserman, 38 Hy"d, of Einav, were murdered and two others wounded in three terrorist shootings in Samaria Monday, threatening the already fragile cease fire.

The fatalities occurred as the IDF continued easing restrictions in the West Bank and Gaza, lifting internal blockades on villages and towns and opening roads to Palestinian traffic.

Yehuda died instantly from a gunshot wound to the head as he drove on the road between Shavei Shomron and Homesh. His passenger, Alex Briskin, 17, suffered light to moderate wounds and was taken to Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba.

According to initial findings, two terrorists in a yellow Palestinian Mercedes taxi passed Yehuda's car, apparently to check the occupants, then drove on, turned around, and opened fire. They then returned to check if the car's occupants were dead.

Briskin told police he lay on the car floor, pretending he was dead, until the terrorists fled to the nearby autonomous area.

Last week, shots were fired at Yehuda's car on the Nablus bypass road. Bullets hit the car, but he was unharmed.

As the levaya made its way another fatal attack occurred near Einav, west of Tulkarm. Doron Zisserman, 38, father of four, was shot in the head and neck by a terrorist standing on a hilltop east of the entrance to Einav. He died shortly thereafter. The terrorist had opened fire at a convoy of three cars, hitting Zisserman, then shooting at the other cars.

The 21st victim of the Dolphinarium bombing died yesterday as well.

Four mortar shells were fired Monday night at the Neveh Dekalim industrial zone in the Gaza Strip, no injuries were reported.

The IDF renewed its encirclement of Tulkarm and blocked several roads in the area following Monday's shooting attacks which killed two Israelis and wounded three.

Monday night in the Gaza Strip, shots were fired at an IDF post near Neveh Dekalim. Earlier, two antitank grenades and shots were fired at soldiers patrolling close to Rafah. Early Monday morning two mortar shells were fired at an army post near Neveh Dekalim and two grenades at an IDF post near Rafah.
