Israelis kill 'They'll never catch me' militant

BALATA REFUGEE CAMP, West Bank — Israeli troops on Thursday killed five Palestinians, including a top militant who said just a day earlier that he would never be caught, in Israel's largest military sweep since pulling out from the Gaza Strip last summer.

Three of the dead were gunmen from the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades — a violent offshoot of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah Party — killed during a shootout in their hide-out in the Balata refugee camp.

The deaths brought to eight the number of Palestinians killed by army fire since the Balata sweep began Monday. The military said 15 fugitives have been arrested.

Dozens of jeeps patrolled Balata, an Al Aqsa stronghold and a haven for weapons dealers, and sealed it off from the adjacent city of Nablus. Al Aqsa fugitives have been moving from hide-out to hide-out since the army raid began.

Al Aqsa confirmed three of its members, including senior member Mohammed Shtawi, a fugitive, had been killed. On Wednesday, Shtawi told an AP reporter that earlier in the day soldiers surrounded his hide-out for five hours, but he and several friends slipped away. "They will never catch me," he said at the time.

Mohammed Shtawi was right, we never did catch him. We just killed him.

Be careful what you wish for.

On Wednesday, Shtawi told an AP reporter

How many examples do we have now of reporters somehow having access to terrorists?

"They will never catch me," No, but they will find you, and drop the Hebrew hammer down.

There's a lesson for the Iranians here.

Well, he was right. Sort of.

He wasn't exactly "caught"...

Proof that there is indeed a God, and that he has a sense of humor.

 Word should be leaked that it was the reporter who tipped off the Israelis as to his location so that the attack could occur. Let's turn the jihadists against their allies in the media
