The wrong house? IDF hit neighbor, not rocket maker?if it turns out to be true....
10:30 P.M. Earlier reports by the IDF Spokesman to the effect that Israel assassinated the head of Hamas' rocket-launching unit Yehiya Rabiah today in an aerial bombing in northern Gaza appear to have been inaccurate. Apparently, the IAF mistakenly bombed the home of one of his neighbors, Mohammed a-Dallo, killing 10 members of his family and two of his neighbors. Rabiah seems to have survived the attack.Ouch.
Ironically, this could seal the ground attack. In a ground attack, you're less likely to make mistakes like that.
