Israeli air strike kills two Gaza militants
Edited on Thu Dec-08-11 09:19 AM by vminfla
An Israeli air strike on a car killed two militants and wounded two other men on a crowded Gaza street Thursday, the Israeli army and local medical officials said.

The men were identified as Essam Al-Batsh and Sobhi Al-Batsh, relatives initially identified as brothers.

Video footage taken minutes after the strike showed the passenger compartment of the car wrecked and on fire with little damage to the immediate surrounding area.

In Tel Aviv, an Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed an air strike had been carried out. She said the two men killed in the incident had been planning an attack on Israeli civilians and soldiers along Israel's border with Egypt's Sinai peninsula.


Another air strike effectively taking out terrorists operating towards the commission of terror. Is it now time for a hudna?

Egyptian ambassador calls Israeli hit on terrorist planning attack from Sinai a "violation," says Cairo working with relevant parties to restore ceasefire; five rockets explode in Israel.

Egypt is working to restore calm in the Gaza Strip and southern Israel after violence escalated following an IDF hit on a prominent Gazan terrorist, Ma'an News Agency reported Thursday.

Egyptian ambassador to the Palestinian Territories Yasser Othman told Ma'an that "Egypt is trying to stop Israeli violations and attacks and reinstate a ceasefire, which Israel annulled today when it assassinated Essam and Sobhi Batash."

2. Egypt maintaines a C- grade when it comes to stemming terrorist activities from within its borders
Egypt will need to do more if it wishes Israel to forgo its rights to defend itself.
