Abdallah Daoud
was responsible for numerous terror attacks. He was one of the terrorists who stormed into the Church of the Nativity in 2002, continuing to fight against Israel for several weeks while using the monks and the religious site as a shield. He was deported to Cyprus and later Mauritania, and died in Algeria of natural causes.
