Gaza airstrike kills 2 militants

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071217/ap_on_re_mi_ea/israel_airstrike;_ylt=Ak3HbxRvtD323EKTMOQNS7JvaA8F

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - An Israeli airstrike hit a car filled with explosives in Gaza City after nightfall Monday, killing a senior Islamic Jihad commander and another militant and critically wounding a third in a huge blast, witnesses and hospital officials said.

The Israeli military said the target of the attack heard around the city was Majed Harazin, a senior Islamic Jihad militant in charge of rocket squads that have been firing at Israel.

Islamic Jihad spokesman Khaled el-Batch confirmed that Harazin was killed in the attack. Harazin, a top Islamic Jihad commander for both the West Bank and Gaza, rarely traveled in vehicles for fear of an Israeli airstrike, Palestinians said. He was on Israel’s wanted list for nine years, they said.

Islamic Jihad supporters gathered around the morgue and pledged revenge.

“The blood of our comrades will be the fuel for the rockets that will bring death and destruction to the Zionists,” another Islamic Jihad spokesman, Abu Hamza, told The Associated Press.

The Israeli military often targets militants in airstrikes, aiming for squads involved in daily rocket fire.

Hamas radio said the car was filled with explosives and warned people to stay away, but people crowded around the burning vehicle. Witnesses said the initial blast was followed by smaller explosions after the car was hit while slowing down near a mosque.

Wow, things must be bad if they're low on rocket fuel.

I always liked the fact the Israelis don't mess around when they target someone. Below is the picture of the pavement smear that was Ahmed Yassin after his "armored" wheelchair played chicken with a Hellfire missile and lost. There's a better pic out there of a dog licking his chops while standing over Yassin pieces; but it's a little graphic for the forum.

I’m starting to agree with the people who say that, after a car strike, the IAF should wait for the mob to gather and then go back and bounce the rubble.

Look in your rearview mirror. One helicopter is all it takes to put one permanently out of the jihad business.

“The blood of our comrades will be the fuel for the rockets”

This helps to explain why so few Nobel prizes in chemistry have been awarded to Palestinians.

al Reuters now saying that 5 "militants" (aka terrorists to normal thinking people) were killed.

GAZA (Reuters) - Israel killed a senior Islamic Jihad commander, a top bombmaker and at least four other militants in the Gaza Strip on Monday, prompting the group to threaten suicide bombings within the Jewish state.

Good work IDF!
