The Hunt for the Engineer
How Israeli Agents Tracked the Hamas Master BomberBook - 1999
Yehiya Ayyash, the Palestinian bomb builder known to the world simply as "The Engineer," killed 130 Israelis and wounded nearly 500 during a twenty-four-month campaign of terror. On April 6, 1994, Ayyash's first powerful car bomb, detonated by a suicide bomber, killed eight and wounded thirty people; a week later a man devastated a crowded bus by exploding 50 pounds of high explosives strapped to his body. More bombings, all masterminded by the Engineer, followed with sickening regularity. As the carnage in the streets of Israeli cities mounted, a new phase took shape in the fifty-year-old war as the Israeli electorate began to turn against the government-supported peace process. Meanwhile, the Engineer became the most wanted man in modern Israeli history. Book jacket.
