Last Wednesday night, Islamic Jihad fired a Grad rocket that struck near Rehovot
to mark the October 1995 assassination in Malta of Islamic Jihad leader Fathi
Shikaki, a murderously zealous ideologue inspired by the Islamic revolution in
Iran and an avid supporter of suicide bombings as a means of terrorizing
Israel.Various news media, including the BBC, have reported that the
Mossad was responsible for Shikaki’s assassination.
