August 5, 2012 15:26

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) bombed a motorbike in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, striking a global jihad terrorist who the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) said was plotting a terror attack along the Egyptian border. Palestinian hospital officials said the man died in the attack, and one other was injured.

Security sources said the terrorist was Ahmed Ismail, 22, from the Gaza Strip. They said he was part of the group that carried out the attack in June that killed an Israeli workman, and was in the midst of planning another attack against Israel along the border.

Security sources said it was possible the strike thwarted the terror attack.
