Sgt. Gavriel Uziel was killed this morning by Arab gunfire

He and other soldiers were arresting an Islamic Jihad terrorist in Jenin. He was 20 years old.

May his family and friends be comforted . . .

Arutz Sheva points out that Sgt. Uziel, of Givat Ze'ev just north of Jerusalem, is the 62nd victim of Palestinian terrorism and violence since the Israeli government accepted - with reservations - the American-sponsored Road Map plan three months ago.

The Oslo War, which began almost three years ago, has claimed 842 Israeli victims in total.

Arafat's FATAH organization claimed responsibility for the killing.
