[IMRA: The description of Tanzim as being "an offshoot of Palestinian
Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement" is the equivalent of
writing that the Israel Air Force is "an offshoot" of the IDF.]

An Israeli civilian was shot dead Friday morning by a Palestinian gunman
close to the West Bank settlement of Itamar, south of Nablus.

The man was seriously wounded in the attack, and died of his injuries on the
way to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva. He was later named as 50-year-old
Itamar resident Shlomo Miller, the father of seven children and a security
officer at the settlement.

Miller's funeral will take place at 4 P.M. on the Mount of Olives in
Jerusalem.

The gunman was shot dead by security guards at the settlement soon after the
attack. He had opened fire when Miller had driven out to investigate the
sound of gunshots.

The attacker was identified as a member of the Tanzim, an offshoot of
Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement. Palestinian
sources told Israel Radio that Yusuf Hanani, 25, was also an officer in the
Palestinian Preventive Security Service.

Hanani lived in the West Bank village of Beit Furik, near Nablus, from where
some 30 Palestinians have carried out shooting attacks and suicide bombings
since the start of the intifada.

Also Friday, Israel Defense Forces soldiers shot and wounded two armed
Palestinians on the Karni-Netzarim road in the northern Gaza Strip.
