Finally, a less risky operation

This morning, for the first time in three years, a helicopter fired a missile into a building in Jenin, killing two Islamic Jihad terrorists who were planning an attack against Israel. The terrorists were identified as Osama Attili and Mohammed Atik (YNet has the names as Amjed Attili, 24, from Attil near Tul Karem, and Muhammad Attik, 26, from Burqin, near Jenin).

But what is more significant is the IDF's explanation for why the operation was carried out from the air and not by ground troops:
The army said the decision to attack the building from the air was made as a result of the difficulty that ground troops would have had if they were sent in to arrest the wanted men.
Signs of the Messiah coming?

This war has had 'acharit-hayamim' written all over it from the beginning.

Love. It.
