Monday, October 17, 2005 | 
At the Gush Etzion Junction on Raod 60 to Hebron a Palestinian terrorist shot at youngsters standing at a bus stop and killed two girls which are cousins aged 21 and an 15 year old boy. Five more bystanders were wounded. The Al-Aksa-Martyr brigades took responsibility for the attack. The terrorist escaped. In response to the attack Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz cut security contact with the Palestinian Authority and ordered the IDF to reestablish roadblocks it had removed over the past year. “We want the dialogue with the Palestinians to continue but we can’t if the PA doesn’t start taking significant and active steps against the terrorist organizations.”
