ISA ARRESTS MURDERER OF 10-MONTH-OLD SHALHEVET PASS
(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)
Monday, December 09, 2002

The ISA, along with IDF forces, recently arrested Tanzim militant Mahmud
Muhammad Mahmud Amro, 26, a resident of Wadi Alhariah/Hebron. During
questioning, he admitted perpetrating the 26.March.2001 murder of
10-month-old Shalhevet Pass

Mar 26, 2001 - Shalhevet Pass, age 10 months, was killed by sniper fire at
the entrance to the Avraham Avinu neighborhood in Hebron.

Shalhevet, seated in her stroller, was going with her parents to visit her
grandparents in the Avraham Avinu neighborhood in Hebron. A Palestinian
sniper opened fire from the Abu Sneneh neighborhood on the hill opposite.
Shalhevet was fatally wounded by a shot to the head. Her father, Yitzhak,
was moderately wounded in both legs.

Her parents, Yitzhak and Oriya, have been married for about two years.
Shalhevet was their first child. Yitzhak is a yeshiva student. Oriya, who
grew up in Hebron, works as a teacher's aide in a nursery school.

The family has known terrorist attacks in the past. In November 1993,
Oriya's father was attacked and seriously injured by two axe-wielding
Palestinians on his way to morning prayers near the Machpela Cave. In
January 1996, Oriya's sister, Orital, then 14, was stabbed in the back by a
Palestinian near the Hebron market. This past March 10, Yitzhak's brother
was shot in the leg while visiting the family in Hebron.

Shalhevet was buried in the ancient Jewish cemetery in Hebron.

Following the murder, Amro was detained by the Palestinian Police, but
was released shortly afterwards.

Amro has also been involved in numerous attacks in the Hebron area in
the past two years.
