Tali's girls
Palestinian terrorists fired on and killed Tali Hatuel, 34, of Moshav Katif. She was eight months pregnant. Also shot to death were her four daughters, Hila (11), Hadar (9), Roni (7) and Meirav (2). The youngest was killed while strapped in her car seat

A press report by the respected Israeli news agency Ha'aretz claimed that Hamas, Yasser Arafat's Fatah and the Islamic Jihad claimed joint responsibility for the attack. According to Voice of Israel's Avi Yissakharov, Hamas boasted that just as they are successfully driving the Jews from Gaza, so will they drive the Jews from other regions in Israel. In what has become a common scenario following terror attacks, Muslim civilians in several locales under Philistine control celebrated in the streets the murder of the Jewish mother and her children.
