A Reuters’ SUV got blammed by Israeli forces near the Gaza border on Saturday. Journalists were injured and the van isn’t faring so well, either:
Israeli aircraft fired two missiles early Sunday at an armored car belonging to the Reuters news agency, wounding five people, including two cameramen, Palestinian witnesses and hospital officials said.
The Israeli army said it did not realize the car’s passengers were journalists and only attacked because the vehicle was driving in a suspicious manner near Israeli troops in the middle of a combat zone.
Soo… while some Palestinian splinter group holds Fox News journalists captive [supposedly they will soon be let go by their captors, the Holy Jihad Brigade], Israel just happens to pound Reuters.
Seems to me that each side recognizes their own “good guys.”
Meanwhile, it is of interest to compare the tactics of the IDF with those of the Holy Jihad Brigade. The latter appears to have coereced “conversions” to Islam from the captives as a condition for their release. An interesting theological approach.
The IDF seems to prefer the direct method.
