Another Dead Terrorist

Islamic Jihad's top bombmaker killed by Israeli missile

The senior explosives expert for Islamic Jihad and another Palestinian militant died when Israeli missiles hit two cars in Gaza City on Sunday night, the group says.

Islamic Jihad confirmed that the attack killed Adnan Bustan, 28.

The group said Bustan was in charge of Islamic Jihad's engineering and manufacturing unit, which produces rockets and explosives.

Islamic Jihad officials identified the other dead militant as Jihad al-Sawafiri, 31, who was believed to have led an Islamic Jihad rocket firing squad.

The group has claimed responsibility for several rocket attacks on Israel in recent days, including one on Friday that wounded three Israelis, including a baby. More @ CBC
