Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Beit Lid massacre was a suicide attack by Palestinian Islamic Jihad against Israel at the Beit Lid Junction on January 22, 1995. It was the first suicide attack by Palestinian Islamic Jihad. In 1994, Hani Abed, a Palestinian Islamic Jihad operative, brokered an alliance between Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. (Hani was later assassinated by Israel). As part of the alliance, Hamas's chief bombmaker, Yahya Ayyash, built the three bombs used by Islamic Jihad for the Beit Lid suicide attack. Each was made using plumber's pipe (one foot long and eight inches (203 mm) wide) and five kilograms of military-grade TNT, surrounded by nails.show more
