Crocodile Tears: Another 4-6 Bite the Dust

According to reports (heck, it's even hit the frontpage of Yahoo! News), Israel has killed 4 militants at the edge of the Gaza Strip today, in an "exchange of gunfire."

I'm also seeing a funeral for 2 jihadis from Fatah killed in an unrelated "exchange" of gunfire in the West Bank. Both events will be catalogued beyond the fold--but first, I highly recommend you check out this article to get a feel for how these kinds of mass funerals actually happen in the "Palestinian" territories.

West Bank



You'll want to see here, here, and here for some background on Abu Ammar Martyrs Brigades, which is an offshoot of Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades which seems to be targeted for destruction even with everything else that's going on over there. And keep in mind that, reports from Palestinians notwithstanding, the Israeli Defence Forces has yet to admit to any of the killings of Abu Ammar militants--at least, as far as I know.
