Mazal Afari, 65, a resident of Moshav Kfar Yavetz, east of Netanya, was killed and three of her grandchildren were lightly injured when a suicide bomber detonated his explosives inside their home, causing it to collapse. Initially police thought a gas balloon had exploded, but later discovered explosives and a switch among the rubble. Representatives of Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the blast, the first since the start of the Palestinian cease-fire. [...]
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and Arafat's Al-Aksa brigades reject peace and wish for the destruction of Israel and the genocide of her citizens. For a list of mass murders executed by these bastards, click here.
This is the end of the "cease fire". The members of Palestinian Islamic Jihad will now be hunted down just like the members of Hamas.

Moshav resident killed in first
Mazal Afari, 65, a resident of Moshav Kfar Yavetz, east of Netanya, was killed and three of her grandchildren were lightly injured when a suicide bomber detonated his explosives inside their home, causing it to collapse. Initially police thought a gas balloon had exploded, but later discovered explosives and a switch among the rubble. Representatives of Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the blast, the first since the start of the Palestinian cease-fire.
The body of an unidentified man was discovered in the wreckage of the home and residents of Moshav Kfar Yavetz said he was not familiar to them. No terrorist organization has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. Although the number of intelligence warnings of impending terror attacks has dropped significantly since the terror organizations declared a hudna, or temporary cease-fire, there are still some cells in the West Bank motivated to strike at Israeli targets, security officials said.
Just before 8:30 p.m. Monday night, a loud blast shattered the quiet in Kfar Yavetz, a small community southwest of Tulkarm and near the seam line border.
"The destruction of the house was total," said one of Afari's neighbors, who arrived at the scene ahead of rescue teams. "The right half of the house, the living room and porch, were destroyed, and also the tiled roof."
Rescue teams initially believed the blast was caused by a gas explosion, similar to the one in Tel Aviv last week which took the lives of seven people. But the gas balloons outside the house were discovered intact.
"The possibility that this was the result of a gas explosion has been ruled out," said Sharon Region Police Commander Amichai Shay.
Yehuda Bachar, commander of the Police's central region, said it was a "very, very high probability" that the blast was the work of a suicide bomber. "Unfortunately, we are well-acquainted with the scenes of suicide bombings, and the body of the young man found at this scene, the nature of its 'distribution' and its shattering points to a suicide terrorist," he said.
Police are investigating why the suicide bomber chose to detonate his explosives in a private home, where the results of his actions would be 'minimal.'
