Alright, you have convinced me in this, that a suicide attack contains 
intentional dying. This does actually confirm what I felt, that 
{Heghta'} implies intentional dying and therefore can certainly only be 
used with a suicide.

As SuStel wrote, {Heghta' targh} makes no sense. (Yeah, only when the 
Targ died intentionally, but we've had that already :-) )
