This chapter describes the operation of the Giants Abu–Surur, 'Uthman, and al–Hindi on July 1, 1993 when they boarded Egged bus #25 on French Hill. Besides their weapons, they carried with them a leaflet demanding the release of Sheikh 'Abdul Karim Obeid. According to the bus driver, David Yom–Tov, Abu–Surur pointed his gun at him, and David jumped at him but not before Abu–Surur hit him in the thigh. The double bus lost control, as Abu–Surur and al–Hindi fled, leaving behind their bombs and also 'Uthman, who was shot in the head but managed to survive in Hadassah Hospital. They managed to find a getaway car. They fired at the soldiers and tossed hand grenades at them, but the grenades failed to explode and the soldiers opened fire. The car went out of control, before colliding with a tree and blowing up. The bodies of Abu–Surur and al–Hindi were charred beyond recognition.

Keywords:   Abu–Surur, Muhammad al–Hindi, Salah 'Uthman, David Yom–Tov
