This article is about the Tanzim militant. For Robert F. Kennedy's assassin, see Sirhan Sirhan.

Sirhan Sirhan (Arabic: سرحان سرحان, died 2003) was a Palestinian responsible for an attack on the Israeli Kibbutz (community) Metzer on November 10, 2002, in which he killed five Israeli civilians, including Revital Ohayoun, 34, and her two young children (Matan, 5, and Noam, 4), who were killed in their beds.[1][2] He was reportedly a member of Tanzim, an armed wing of Fatah. Despite initial claims to the contrary, he was not related to Sirhan Sirhan, the Palestinian American Christian who assassinated United States Senator Robert F. Kennedy in 1968.

His house was demolished on December 19, 2002, by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). On October 3, 2003, Sirhan was killed by Yamam, an IDF counter-terrorism unit, during an attempt to arrest him.[3]
