Israel killed the leader of an al Qaeda-inspired faction in an airstrike on the Gaza Strip on Friday, accusing him of launching short-range rockets into the Jewish state.

Militants identified the man as Momen Abu Daf of the Army of Islam, part of a loose network of Palestinian groups that profess allegiance to al Qaeda and which have been reinforced by radical Salafi volunteers from neighbouring Egypt.

Abu Daf was killed when a missile hit Gaza City’s Zeitoun neighbourhood, the Hamas administration said. Five other Palestinians were wounded and one of them needed hospital treatment, the Palestinian Health Ministry said. Read the original article at Reuters

  1. I know they are creative enough without my ideas. But, they should implant lojac in everyone they catch, go in through an orifice so they don’t know. Then, they can track the ones they release and ensure they get them later if they return to violence. Like Barghouti(sp?). And the terrorists, when they find out, will never trust them again.
