Israeli shells 'kill Palestinian'

Blares this BBC headline for a story that is short on details and is designed to make Israel the bad guy.

If you want the details and the truth see here.

IAF aircraft Saturday morning struck and killed two Palestinian Authority terrorists in northern Gaza. The two men, members of the Fatah-affiliated Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigade's Mujahideen units, were involved in Kassam rocket attacks on Israeli targets in the western Negev. The cell they were a part of was planning further rocket attacks, as well. Arab sources reported that a missile fired by an IAF plane struck a car carrying the two terrorists, killing them and seriously injuring a third person.

On Saturday night, IAF planes bombed a Fatah training camp in the southern Gaza Strip. Palestinian Authority sources report that between six and seven terrorists were killed in the strike. The facility, established on the ruins of the evicted Jewish community of N'vei Dekalim,was used by Fatah terrorists for training and attack preparations.

The Saturday night strike was the third for the IAF in the last 24 hours, as on Friday night the force successfully eliminated five armed men who had just left a terrorist training camp in Rafiach, on the Gaza-Egypt border. Among those killed was Iyad Abd Al-Ainan, an explosives expert of the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), an organizational framework including Islamist and pan-Arabist terrorists.

Now you know why the BBC didn't give you any details.


Surprisingly, even the AP tell the truth.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Two Israeli air strikes killed eight Palestinian militants Saturday in the latest signs that Israel has stepped up its retaliation for Palestinian rocket fire from Gaza since the Islamic militant group Hamas assumed power last week.


Earlier Saturday, two members of the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, a violent offshoot of the Fatah Party, were killed and a third was seriously wounded in an Israeli missile strike on their car in Gaza. The militants had just fired a rocket toward Israel and returned to their car when they were hit, the Israeli military said.


In recent days, the military has also intensified artillery attacks on Gaza, for the first time firing at rocket launch sites even if they are in populated areas, rather than aiming only at open fields. Over a four-day period, two Palestinians have been killed and 25 wounded by direct artillery hits on houses, Palestinian officials said. Israeli security officials said troops have fired 750 artillery shells since Thursday.

So, the Palestinian terrorists are using human shields now.
