Two days after surviving an Israeli attempt on his life, a senior Islamic Jihad commander was killed in Gaza City on Thursday - along with two other terrorists - in an IAF strike on his car. Security officials said Islamic Jihad leader Omar Khatib, 32, was behind Islamic Jihad's foiled kidnap attempt near the Kissufim crossing on June 9, when three terrorists driving a jeep with TV-reporter markings infiltrated into Israel. Khatib, the officials said, was also responsible for dozens of Kassam rocket and mortar attacks on the western Negev.

Earlier Thursday, the IAF killed a Hamas member who was trying to fire an rocket-propelled-grenade at a Golani infantry force operating inside the Gaza Strip, north of the Sufa crossing and east of Khan Yunis. The troops discovered several weapon caches and clashed with a number of gunmen, wounding five. In one incident, troops targeted a pair of terrorists about to fire Kassam rockets in northern Gaza. The two were wounded, Hamas said. Source.

MK - And because I know this will cause much tut-tuting, if not wailing, amongst those leftie fruitcakes that just keep hanging around here.
