Yesterday, the IDF killed a man who was planting explosive devices near the fence in Gaza.
It turns out that he was involved in the fatal ambush last March, where Maj. Eliraz Peretz and St.-Sgt. Ilan Sviatkovsky were killed as they also went to confront Gazans planting explosives near the fence.
Islamic Jihad was very proud of that operation, which they had called "Operation Luring Idiots." PIJ is claiming that the Gazan killed was the architect of that March attack while the IDF says that he took part.
Ma'an in Arabic, usually upheld as the most moderate of Palestinian Arab news outlets, calls the terrorist a "martyr."
