Car Swarm Watch - 4 Palestinians killed in Gaza airstrike

The IAF got four more late last night, and wounded six more on top of that.

The Jerusalem Post reports that the IAF fired a missile from a helicopter at a group of Palestinian terrorists who were preparing to launch rockets at Israel from Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip, and who opened fire on Israeli troops. Four terrorists were killed and six were wounded.

But there's more to this one: the Post reports that this was a result of a joint operation between the IAF and IDF special forces, entering deep into the Gaza Strip for the first time since the disengagement from the Gaza Strip last summer.

Islamic Jihad has acknowledged that the terrorists belonged to it, and claims that two of the wounded are 'journalists' (al-Reuters stringers?) and an 'ambulance driver' (and we all know how the 'Palestinians' have used ambulances in the past).
