Tragedy and Heroism In Israel
by

The Jerusalem Post reports:

One woman was killed and 38 people people were wounded, one critically, in a suicide attack in a Dimona commercial center Monday morning.

Police said the attack was carried out by two attackers, but only one succeeded in detonating his explosives.

The other terrorist was killed – seconds before he could detonate his explosives belt – by Kobi Mor, a police officer from an elite unit who happened to be on the scene.

The bombers entered Israel threw Egypt, when Hamas blew up the Gaza-Egypt border wall. It is also worth noting that Dimona is the city that is home to Israel’s nuclear reactor.

And here are details on the heroic police officer Mor, whose actions saved an untold number of lives:

He shot the terrorist in the head, and when the latter in his last breath still tried to press the detonator button, shot him four more times and killed him. Mor managed to kill the terrorist before he could explode and without hitting his explosive belt, thus preventing a much more devastating attack.

Meanwhile, Defense Minister Ehud Barak is renewing a plan to build a security fence along the porous Egyptian border.
