The Popular Resistance Committee (PRC) in Gaza seems to be losing its fight with Israel, not surprisingly, after kicking off the latest round of Muslim terrorist violence with an attack on vehicles near the Israeli town of Eilat on Thursday that killed 8 Israelis, including 6 civilians. Seven Palestinian gunmen were hunted down and killed in the wake of the attacks.
Israel then responded by targeting the PRC, and in the past 24 hours, in precision strikes, it has killed Kamal al-Neirab, the PRC's leader; Imad Hamad, the organization’s military leader, and other operatives, including the group’s rocket expert and his 2-year-old son, who died when the missiles struck their house. Another PRC militant was hit while on his motorcycle.
I would not want to be a PRC member right about now.
And in other news, a suicide bomber blew himself up in a packed mosque in the Khyber area of Pakistan, killing at least 45. The bombing came despite it being Ramadan. The bomber appeared to be 15 or 16 years old, and entered the mosque as services were ending, detonating a vest filled with explosives and ball bearings.
“Whoever did it in the holy month of Ramadan cannot be a Muslim,” survivor Saleem Khan told the Associated Press from his hospital bed in Peshawar, the major northwestern city where many of the injured were taken. “It is the cruelest thing any Muslim would do.”
I'm betting it was a Muslim.
