Fatah and Hamas really ARE united - in terror

YNet reports on some more nice shooting:

Israel Air Force aircrafts were able to target a vehicle transporting Assam Subahi Ismail Batash, a senior Gaza-based terror operative.

According to the IDF and the Shin Bet, Batash was the mastermind behind several terror attacks carried out by militants who infiltrated into Israel from the Sinai Peninsula.

Palestinian security officials said Thursday that a car transporting three people exploded near a public garden in Gaza City, killing at least two people and injuring six. IDF officials confirmed that the IAF had targeted a vehicle carrying Batash. Eyewitnesses reported seeing the two men being pulled out of the white vehicle.

Batash, IDF officials claimed, was a senior figure in the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, and was behind the imminent terror threat in the south.

Officials said Batash was also involved in several attacks in which terrorists from Gaza were smuggled into Sinai and then infiltrated back into Israel through the border. In January 2007 he organized a suicide bombing in Eilat that killed three Israelis.

Batash was also involved in several botched attacks, in which he tried to smuggle terrorists and arms into Israel.
However, who was the other person killed?

According to Palestine Press Agency, it was his nephew, Subhi Batash, who was a member of the Al Qassam Brigades.

Which means that members of the Fatah terror group and the Hamas terror group really do love to cooperate!

So there really was some unity that was being celebrated in Cairo.

(Fans of car swarm videos can see the one from this strike here.)
