Wednesday, March 01, 2006 | 
An Israeli was killed on Wednesday in a terror attack at a gas station near Migdalim, a settlement southeast of Nablus. Two terrorists arrived at the gas station on foot, shot the gas attendant in the head, then fled in a waiting car. In a separate incident, a Palestinian stabbed two Israelis, including a teen-age girl, at the Gush Etzion junction near Jerusalem on Tuesday. An off-duty police officer shot the terrorist, seriously wounding him. He and the two stabbing victims were taken to Jerusalem hospitals. In another incident, a senior Islamic Jihad man in Gaza was killed in a car bomb blast. Palestinian police said that Khaled Dahdouh, 39, was killed by an Israeli Air Force air strike. However, other Palestinians said the explosion may have been caused by a work accident. The IAF has not confirmed involvement.
