IDF kills Shalit kidnapper

On Saturday morning, the IDF killed one of the kidnappers of IDF Corporal Gilad Shalit.

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Lisa Graas via Patricia Smiley via Tammy Bruce).

The Israeli military said on Saturday a top militant killed in a predawn raid was “directly and physically involved” in the 2006 capture of Gilad Shalit, a soldier Israel believes is still being held in the Gaza Strip.

Tayser Abu Snima, who Palestinian medics said was killed in an air strike on a vehicle along the Gaza-Egyptian border, was a key figure in the Hamas Islamist group that controls the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli statement called Abu Snima a senior Hamas operative in Gaza and said he was “directly and physically involved in the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit,” a soldier who disappeared in a June 2006 cross-border raid.
Good riddance.

Did you notice that the reporter's last choking sentence was something like "two years of skirmishes escalated suddenly when Hamas fired rockets into Israel." How did that slip past the Reuters editors?
