Islamic Jihad Boss Killed

From Reuters:
GAZA (Reuters) - Islamic Jihad's most senior commander in the Gaza Strip was killed on Wednesday by an explosion that tore through his car, the Palestinian militant group said, blaming the Israeli army, which denied involvement.

Witnesses to the death of Abu al-Waleed al-Dahdouh, head of Islamic Jihad's armed wing in the Gaza Strip, said his car blew up as he opened one of its doors and that an Israeli military aircraft was flying overhead at the time.

"The Israeli army did not operate in Gaza," a military spokeswoman said. "It wasn't us."
Another brave jihadi babyhunter bites the dust. Of course the article doesn't tell us exactly which Islamic Jihad al-Dahdouh headed.
