The Engineer devised death and destruction in Israel

*A few weeks later, another booby-trapped van was driven into the bus parking lot at the Mehola junction in the Jordan Valley, and exploded next to a bus. All the buses in the lot were empty, however; the suicide bomber and a worker in the adjacent restaurant were killed.
