Bat Mitzva Massacre Planner Honored in Tulkarm


Ziad D'as, who planned the terror attack at a girl's Bat Mitzva ceremony in Hadera on January 17th 2002, has been honored by a school in Tulkarm, which held a soccer tournament named after him. Six relatives and guests of the Bat Mitzva girl were murdered in cold blood by the terrorist who burst into the celebration and opened fire on the guests.

D'as was the commander of the Fatah-Tanzim terror group in Tulkarm and was eliminated by Israeli security forces in August 2002. He was also involved in the kidnapping and murder of two restaurateurs, Etgar Zeitouni and Moti Dayan, in Tulkarm, in January of 2001.
