The most notorious attack (whith the greatest potential harm) on the 443 road was at the Macabim checkpoint on Feb. 27, 2002. Female terrorist Dareen Abu Aisheh arrived in a car at the Maccabim checkpoint from the direction of Jerusalem. In the vehicle with her were two Tanzim operatives, Hafez Mouqbal and Mousa Hasounaafez . The two were asked to present their IDs, and when Abu Aisheh was asked to present hers she detonated the explosives strapped to her waist, killing herself and lightly wounding two policemen. Prior to leaving for the attack, Abu Aisheh was videotaped by Ahmad Asi, a journalist from Ramallah, while holding a dagger. The Tanzim, a Fatah organization, took responsibility for the attack.
