A hero from intifada.

One of Intifada's heroes:
This is kinda old, but i just somehow came across it again, and wanted to share it with you.
The guy name is Thaer Hamad, he was born in 1980 in the village of silwad, and now he is in Israeli prison for 11 life times years. (each 25 years)
What he did, is basically, using an M1 rifle from WW2 and 24 bullets, he managed to kill 11 soldiers and injure ~9 more (20/24 hits) ! until his rifle exploded on the 25th shot. And I guess you have an Idea how armored those soldiers are. He was good ! Source.
Even the Israeli army and investigators thought that he was one of the Irish republican army or was trained by the IRA, according to this.
What I liked the most is a letter he wrote as a reply to the mother of one of the soldiers he killed, when she asked him why he did that, you can read that all here.
