Three Gaza Terrorists Killed While Firing Rocket at Israel

[Ha'aretz] Anshel Pfeffer and Avi Issacharoff - IDF jets attacked an Islamic Jihad unit preparing a rocket for launch toward Israel Friday night, killing three, an IDF spokesperson said Saturday. An IDF aircraft fired a single rocket at the group, killing Mahmoud Bana, Kamal Dahdouh and Muhammed Marshoud. Security sources believe this unit was responsible for firing a rocket at Sderot on Rosh Hashanah. Kamal Dahdouh was the son of Khaled Dahdouh, a former head of the Islamic Jihad military wing targeted by Israel in 2006. Security sources said that there has been a recent increase in attempts by Palestinian organizations, especially Islamic Jihad and al-Qaeda affiliated groups, to carry out attacks against IDF patrols around Gaza and to launch shells and rockets at Israeli-populated areas nearby.
