Jerusalem bulldozer terrorist buried


The Jerusalem Arab who killed three Israelis in a bulldozer rampage before being shot dead was buried.

Relatives of Husam Duwayat laid him to rest early Thursday in a discreet ceremony  in their neighborhood of Sur Baher watched by Israeli police.

Duwayat, who held an Israeli identity card and was not known to have links to Palestinian terrorist groups, veered his bulldozer off a construction site on Jerusalem’s Jaffa Road on July 2, deliberately crushing two women and a man. Dozens of others were injured until an off-duty soldier shot Duwayat.

Authorities had refused to release the Arab’s body until it was ascertained that his funeral would not become a show of support for Palestinian terror.
