Motorcycle swarm!

The IAF struck an Islamic Jihad terrorist on a motorcycle on Sunday morning, taking him out of commission for a long time to come. According to the IDF spokesman, the terrorist was responsible for Thursday's rocket fire on Ashkelon and constituted an immediate danger.

Let's go to the videotape. More after the video.

The target, named as Ahmed Sa'ad, took part in the firing of rockets at southern Israeli communities, the IDF said, and planned further attacks in the near future.

Palestinian media sources said a missile struck a 22-year-old motorcyclist in Gaza who sustained serious injuries, along with a 12-year-old boy who suffered moderate injuries.

"We acted to remove an immediate threat to Israeli civilians," the IDF spokesman said. "Sa'ad was personally responsible for the firing of rockets at Ashkelon last Thursday," he added, referring to an attack that saw five rockets fired at the southern city in the middle of the night, setting off air raid sirens. The Iron Dome anti-rocket system intercepted all of the projectiles heading to Ashkelon in that attack.

Sa'ad was also involved in planting rocket launchers, the IDF spokesman added. During Operation Pillar of Defense, in November 2012, and an earlier escalation, in March 2012, Sa'ad fired rockets at Israel as well, according to the military.
According to Palestinian news agency Ma'an, two other Israeli air strikes on sites used to train Palestinian militants in central and southern Gaza left no reported injuries.
Good riddance!
