Israel fails to kill Jihad chief


"Israeli helicopter gunships attacked targets in Gaza City apparently targeting the top leader of Islamic Jihad after Palestinian militants killed 13 soldiers this week.

"Islamic Jihad officials said four missiles hit a building housing Mohammed al-Hindi's office but that he was safely in hiding.
The presumed attempt on his life drew vows of "earthquake-like" revenge attacks against the Jewish state.

The airstrike - which the Israeli army said targeted nerve centres of "terrorist activity" in Gaza - followed Israel's assassinations of the two senior Hamas leaders in recent weeks and threats to keep striking at the militants' upper echelons.

The missiles hit just hours after two Israeli soldiers were killed by Hamas militants in a refugee camp in the southern Gaza Strip in the latest in a series of ambushes that has dealt the Middle East's mightiest army its worst blow in two years.

Meanwhile, Israeli troops pulled out of the town of Rafah, after days of operation, an army spokesman said."

1. Is it just me?
Or are the Palestinians taking a page from the Iraqi playbook?
