Slain IDF Officer Labeled a Hero by Shin Bet Chief

Arutz Sheva December 29, 2005

(IsraelNN.com) First Lt. Uri Binamo was praised Thursday evening by Shin Bet
Chief Yuval Diskin for his ultimate sacrifice in the service of saving
lives.

Binamo was murdered when a suicide bomber blew himself up Thursday morning
after being asked to raise his shirt during inspection at a checkpoint near
Tul Karm. The terrorist was headed for the Tel Aviv area to carry out a mass
attack.

“If First Lieutenant Binamo and his friends had not blocked the suicide
bomber with their bodies, this day would have ended much worse,” Diskin pointed
out. The IDF set up the checkpoint in response to several warnings of
impending terrorist attacks in the area.

Nine others were injured in the blast.
