Remember Reem Raiyshi, the suicide bomber and mother of two? Remember how it came out that she had been caught in an affair with a Hamas member and given suicide bombing as an option to save her honor? Well, now the other shoe has dropped: her lover has been killed in an accident. Hamas blames Israel, but has anyone checked with the bomber’s cuckolded husband? From the Jerusalem Post, with thanks to Take_the_Train:
Abdel Nasser Abu Shokeh, 37, of Al-Gourej was killed Friday in an explosion believed until now to be a “work accident,” that is, a premature explosion that occurred while he was handling explosives meant for use against Israel. But in a report by Israel Radio, Hamas now says his death was a hit by Israel.
Shokeh was believed to be head of Hamas’s military wing in Central Gaza. He was also the lover of suicide bomber who blew herself up at the Erez Checkpoint, killing three soldiers and one civilian and leaving behind two children.
After Reem Salah al-Rayashi’s husband discovered the affair, her erstwhile lover apparently supplied her with explosives and chose the place where she should kill herself and any Israelis she could take along with her.
Hamas said that an Arab Israeli who had supplied Shokeh with an army uniform gave him a model of Al-Aqsa Mosque as a gift. A few hours later, the model exploded, killing its new owner.
The Erez attack killed St.-Sgt. Tzur Or, Cpl. Andre Kegeles, Border Policeman St.-Sgt. Vladimir Trostinsky, and Gal Shapira.
