Car swarm watch in Jabalya

An Islamic Jihad terrorist was killed around 8:00 this evening (three hours ago) and another was critically wounded in an IAF airstrike on their car in Jabalya in the Gaza Strip.
Senior Islamic Jihad commander Khaled Shalan was killed on Wednesday night in an IAF missile strike on his car in Gaza.

Another member of the terror group was critically hurt in the attack on the vehicle that was traveling from Jabalya to Beit Lahiya, in northern Gaza.

According to the IDF, Shalan was responsible for the recent rocket fire on Ashkelon.

Hamas officials said the two jumped out of the vehicle when they heard the approaching aircraft, but were hit by the incoming missile.

Five others were reportedly wounded in the strike.

Shortly after the attack, the Islamic Jihad vowed that it would retaliate.

"The [attempted] assassination points to the fact that the Zionist entity is not interested in calm," the group said in a statement. "Therefore, [Israel should] expect our reaction, and more rockets."

"This crime will not pass without a response," the group warned.
What cease fire?

Carl - I have trouble understanding why they are always outraged. Israel is giving them what they want!

Those in love with death should be the first to welcome it but they try to run like cowards for their lives when Israel comes to kill them.

Such "brave" Islamic warriors!

The BBC article on this in Arabic concludes with the line (loosely translated by me): "Observers think that the Israeli air-raid will light a spark of mutual strikes between the parties."

Of course. Those rockets from Gaza were just in celebration of Purim.
