An Israeli helicopter attack in Gaza killed two members of the Islamic Jihad, one of whom was believed to have “jubilantly displayed the severed head of an Israeli soldier two months ago…” The slain terrorist, Hazem Rahim, was on an Israeli list of Palestinians wanted by the Israelis for desecrating the soldier’s bodies after an attack on an APC in May. After the attack, a Palestinian mob was televised mutilating the body parts of the dead troops. Palestinian militants later attempted to exact demands from the Israelis in exchange for the return of the body parts. Minister of Defense Shaul Mofaz vowed to â€œget to all those who hurt our soldiers and desecrated their honorâ€.
Well … one down, a couple more to go.
