"IDF Smashes Large Hamas Terror Cell "

Two years after the Worshipers Path ambush terror attack, the murderers have been killed in a battle with IDF soldiers - marking the liquidation of a major Hamas terror cell in Hevron.

The attack two years ago claimed the lives of 12 men: IDF Commander of the Judea Region, Col. Dror Weinberg, as well as other soldiers, Kiryat Arba emergency team members, and local residents. It occurred on Friday night, November 15, 2002, between Hevron and Kiryat Arba.

IDF forces arrived yesterday at a building in which were hiding two terrorists involved in the attack, and another, more senior terrorist. The troops surrounded the house for nearly three hours, calling upon them to surrender. The Israelis then fired heavily into the house, and an IDF bulldozer began taking down the building.

At this point, the soldiers gingerly entered the building to search for the enemies' bodies - and the terrorists, who had been hiding in a pit underneath, began shooting at the troops. The soldiers responded quickly, and the result was two dead terrorists and another one seriously wounded.
