1974 Nahariya attack – Three Palestinian terrorists - Abd Al-Rahim Nasif, Ahmad Abd Al-'Al, and Muhammad Hanafi - who had reached Israel by boat from Lebanon broke into an apartment building in Nahariya, where they murdered 30-year-old Irena Zarankin, her 10-year-old daughter Ronit, and her 5-year-old son Gilad on June 25, 1974. Zarankin’s husband Mordechai had made a rope out of sheets for them to escape out the window and blockaded the door, but one of the terrorists was waiting below and shot Irena Zarankin and the children as they climbed down. Mordechai Zarankin survived the attack. Israeli soldiers who arrived at the scene killed all three terrorists, but in the exchange of fire 21-year-old Israeli soldier Danny Senesh was also murdered. Fatah claimed responsibility for the attack.
