A Palestinian suicide bomber killed a 63-year-old grocery store
owner when he blew himself up at the entrance to the shop in
Moshav Sdei Trumot. "Our assumption is that [the terrorist] did not
intend to blow himself up at the grocery, but might have been
waiting for people to gather at the nearby bus stop,"
said northern police chief Ya'akov Borovsky.
Borovsky said Mordechai probably prevented a major tragedy by
preventing the suicide bomber from penetrating the center of the
moshav, where many more people could have been killed.
