[But the occupation felt Yaser’s contribution most in the careful and sophisticated planning of infiltration operations against military outposts and settlements. He played a key role in planning the successful infiltration operations into Gush Katif settlement that resulted in the death of at least 6 occupation troops, Eli Sinai settlement (2 operations) that resulted in the death of at least 3 settlers, Dugget settlement that resulted in the death of at least 4 occupation soldiers, Orhan military outpost that resulted in the death of one soldier at least.]
