Car Swarm Watch

Two Islamic Jihad terrorists were killed this evening in a 'targeted assassination' by Israeli security forces.

The IDF confirmed Monday evening that a missile fired by the IAF had hit the car of an Islamic Jihad operative in Gaza.

Security officials said that the target of the attack was Munir Abu Suker, a senior Islamic Jihad commander involved in bomb attacks against security forces and in the firing of Kassam rockets at Israeli civilian targets. He was also involved in smuggling weapons and operatives back and forth between Gaza and Sinai in order to facilitate their crossing into Israel to launch terror attacks.

Among those Abu Suker was involved with smuggling were suicide bombers, whom he smuggled into Sinai so that they could cross into Israel and carry out attacks.

Abu Suker, 30, was riding in the car that was targeted together with Iyad Abu Shaouf, also an Islamic Jihad member. Both men were killed and, according to Palestinians, another two bystanders were killed and seven were wounded.

And here's a picture of the inevitable car swarm:

Another one? What do they do the rest of the time? Rehearse?

Too bad the IAF got only 2, but there is always tomorrow and tomorrow, etc. And the 2 bystanders? 2 less to worry about.
