The local council bus picked up children each morning to take them to two schools.The terrorists knew the schedule of the bus and were able to ambush it. They fired on the bus, killing the adults instantly. The bus driver continued until he himself was shot. Then the bus crashed, injuring many of the remaining children. The attack caused the death of 9 children (aged between six and nine) and 3 adults, and left 19 others crippled for life.The terrorists were never apprehended.

As history repeats, unwilling to be driven out

Shimon Biton, head of the Residents Committee in the border village of Avivim, decided to remain in his home under the threat of rocket attacks from Hezbollah guerrillas that are pounding populated areas in northern Israel.

AVIVIM, Israel - The scars on Shimon Biton's body, still hurting after 36 years, tell him to stay.

"I've lived here 40 years," said Biton, 44, head of the residents' association at the collective farm here on the border with Lebanon, which has become one of the main launching sites for Israeli army attacks into Lebanon. "Hezbollah hasn't pushed me out. They've tried before."

In fact, it was Palestinian guerrillas who penetrated the Israeli perimeter from Lebanon on the morning of May 22, 1970, and used a bazooka to ambush a school bus. Biton was 7 years old. He and his father were on the bus, which was taking children from Avivim to a school in nearby Rehinia. The dead included eight children and four adults. Biton's father was one of them. Biton's injuries kept him in a hospital for six months.,0,6490506.story?coll=ny-worldnews-toputility
