Israeli Attack Kills Islamic Jihad Chief

To quote Nelson Muntz: "Ha, ha!"

JERUSALEM (CNN) -- One person was killed and three were wounded Wednesday in an Israeli airstrike targeting a metal shop in Rafah, according to Palestinian security and medical sources.

Israel Defense Forces confirmed the airstrike.

The person killed was the deputy commander of the Islamic Jihad military wing, according to the Palestinian sources, who said he also served as a school headmaster at a United Nations Relief and Works Agency school.

UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunnes said he could not immediately confirm that the person was employed by the United Nations, and added that staff members who bring politics into U.N. institutions are fired immediately for violating staff rules. (H/T - CNN)

Score one for Israel. God, how I love them!

Although, to be honest, I find it hard to believe that a terrorist commander would be employed by a United Nations organization. /Snark.

UPDATE: Allegedly, the leader of al Qaeda in Somalia was killed in a U.S. airstrike as well. Sweet.
