PIJ Terrorist involved in 2004 attack indicted

An indictment was filed Monday at the Beersheba District Court against an Islamic Jihad operative who was involved in the 2004 attack on the Kissufim Crossing, which left four Israelis dead. Tali Hatuel, 34, who was 8 months pregnant, and her daughters, Hila, 11, Hadar, nine, Roni, seven, and Merav, two, were shot at point-blank range, after initial gunshots brought their car to a halt. The terrorists then sprayed the car with bullets to ensure that all the occupants were dead. Jihad Abu-Dahar, who confessed to taking part in the attack, was arrested by security forces in a June operation.
