Palestinian Kills Six at Israeli Banquet Hall

Thursday, 17 January 2002 12:00 AM

Al Aqsa Brigades, a militia linked to Yasser Arafat's Fatah, took blame.

About 100 people were inside the hall in Hadera celebrating a girl's coming of age. Several people beat the attacker with a chair and bottles and pushed him outside, where he was shot and killed by police. Among the dead was the grandfather of the girl for whom the party was held.

``The terrorist came in the main door with an M-16 at the height of the event and started shooting everywhere,'' said Shimon Asraf, one of owners of David's Palace hall.

The attacker had a grenade and a belt of ammunition, which police at first announced contained explosives for a suicide attack. Their first accounts said he threw hand grenades.

Hadera has been the target of Palestinian militants in the past because it is close to the West Bank.
