Palestinian terrorists shoot Israeli civilian point-blank in the head

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Palestinian terrorists have murdered an Israeli who was working near the town of Tulkarm. The Israeli was bound and shot in the head from point-blank range simply because he was a Jew.

Shani Ladani, 27, of Moshav Olesh in the northern Sharon, was murdered by Palestinian terrorists while he was working near Moshav Nitzanei Oz, west of Tulkarm, Thursday morning. He was buried at Olesh Thursday night.

Ladani was bound hand and foot and shot point-blank in the head in what OC Judea and Samaria Brig.-Gen. Gershon Yitzhak described as a "lynching." [...]

"We understand that they came from Tulkarm, taking advantage of the lifting of the curfew on the city in the morning. They reached the industrial area, did what they did, and then fled into Tulkarm. "

"I can say that all our desire recently to make life easier for the Palestinian populace and enable a return to normal life, does not go hand-in-hand with the ambition and desire of terrorist elements, who are doing everything possible to prevent their own people from resuming a regular routine."

Israeli lynched outside Tulkarm

Shani Ladani, 27, of Moshav Olesh in the northern Sharon, was murdered by Palestinian terrorists while he was working near Moshav Nitzanei Oz, west of Tulkarm, Thursday morning. He was buried at Olesh Thursday night.

Ladani was bound hand and foot and shot point-blank in the head in what OC Judea and Samaria Brig.-Gen. Gershon Yitzhak described as a "lynching."

He said it appeared the terrorists had taken advantage of the easing of the curfew on Tulkarm to perpetrate the attack and had afterward returned to the city.

"In the incident that occurred in the Kshuri industrial zone near Tulkarm, we are talking about the lynching of an Israeli citizen. He was bound and shot in the head from point-blank range simply because he was a Jew," Yitzhak told reporters.

"This is brutal terrorism, which doesn't take into consideration the Palestinian people who came to this place in the morning, as over the past two years, to work, earn their livelihoods, and be able to feed their children.

"We understand that they came from Tulkarm, taking advantage of the lifting of the curfew on the city in the morning. They reached the industrial area, did what they did, and then fled into Tulkarm.

"I can say that all our desire recently to make life easier for the Palestinian populace and enable a return to normal life, does not go hand-in-hand with the ambition and desire of terrorist elements, who are doing everything possible to prevent their own people from resuming a regular routine."

Ladani had been working at the factory for only a few weeks and had apparently brought equipment to store in a nearby warehouse.

Police are still uncertain whether he had been lured to the scene by Palestinians or the terrorists had waited there on the chance of catching a Jewish worker. The possibility of a criminal motive is also being examined, although all the signs point to a terror attack.

Only a handful of Israelis work at factories at the site, which reportedly employ scores of Palestinians.

The industrial zone was established on the Green Line to enable Israeli factory owners to employ Palestinian workers in an organized manner, with all the necessary security arrangements.

Ladani's family yesterday called for beefed up security and drastic measures to prevent further attacks. His father, Adi, clearly crushed by his son's murder said those capable of killing someone in such a cold-blooded manner are "beasts not human beings" and "beasts have to be eliminated."

Thursday evening the government announced its decision to deport relatives of the suicide bombers who carried out the recent attacks in Tel-Aviv and Emmanuel to Gaza. The families will have the opportunity to appeal the decision to the supreme court.

Elsewhere, a bomb was detonated alongside a bus near Morag in the Gaza Strip. A woman had to be treated for shock, but otherwise there were no casualties.

Earlier, a mortar round exploded in a community in Gush Katif and shots were fired at IDF outposts near Neveh Dekalim and near Netzer Hazani. There were no casualties.

There were also incidents in the West Bank. Soldiers on patrol in Jenin came under fire on several occasions, while three bombs were detonated alongside troops in Nablus, without causing any casualties.
