405 Bus Terrorist on Hamas List


Hamas claims that Islamic Jihad terrorist Abd Al-Hadi Ghenaim from Gaza is one of the 1,027 security prisoners to be released by Israel as part of the deal to free abducted soldier Gilad Shalit.

Ganaim was convicted for making a bus on Egged's 405 line from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem to run off Highway 1 and fall over a steep drop between Neve Ilan and Kiryat Ye'arim, just west of the capital, killing 16 people and wounding 27 others on July 6, 1989. Two of the fatalities were from Canada and another was from the United States. A number of the victims were burned when the bus caught fire.
