Israelis Kill Islamic Jihad Leader

Israel stepped up airstrikes in its Gaza offensive, killing an Islamic Jihad leader and bringing to 75 the number of Palestinians killed in the operation to end rocket fire on Israeli towns. With troops and tanks on Tuesday holding a buffer zone in northern Gaza designed to move its towns out of Palestinian rocket range, Israel sent its air force to kill a top militant — Bashir Aldabash, 40. The military said he was the commander of the military wing of Islamic Jihad in Gaza and responsible for “dozens of terrorist attacks and attempted attacks” that killed eight Israelis. The first missile missed, but the second hit the vehicle, which burst into flames. The burning vehicle drove for about 100 yards before it came to a stop. Another Islamic Jihad militant was killed in that airstrike, and a few hours later, a second Israeli missile attack killed two members of the violent Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades. Group Profile
