The jihad in Israel continues, of course. From Haaretz, :
Four IDF soldiers were injured, two moderately and two lightly, when they foiled a major suicide car bomb attack Wednesday on Gaza Strip settlers.
Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack, in which a jeep flying an Israeli flag and packed with as much as 300 kilograms of explosives drew the suspicion of Givati Brigade infantrymen on patrol near the Mor Bridge between the Kissufim crossing and the Gush Katif bloc of settlements.
Hamas identified the man driving the jeep as Tariq Khamayed, 24, of the Nuseirat refugee camp.
The IDF believes Khamayed planned to blow himself up against a bus or a convoy on the Kissufim-Gush Katif highway. The military had received general intelligence warnings of the possibility of such an attack.
The soldiers in a Givati company commander’s patrol vehicle spotted the jeep as it headed through an off-road area toward a road connecting Kfar Darom and the large Gush Katif settlement bloc.
