Eight Suicide Bombers Leave Algeria for Gaza Strip Operation

Eight Suicide Bombers Leave Algeria for Gaza Strip Operation: “

This is ridiculous. Algerian officials are reporting that eight suicide bombers have left Algeria and their destination is Gaza, with plans in place for them to attack Israeli soldiers. Apparently a couple of the would be bombers have already reached Gaza and phoned home to tell their families what they are up to and that is how Algerian officials found out about this.

My questions are:

1. Has Algeria forwarded to Israel the name and photos of these men?
2. How exactly did/do these suicide bombers get into Gaza? Through Egypt?
3. What did Algeria do to stop these bombers in transit? Did they alert Egypt and Israel border patrols?

I mean, good grief, how long are they going to wait to report this?

I guess my other question is this. What group in Gaza is going to use these attackers? Hamas? Islamic Jihad? Al Qaeda in Gaza? Hopefully, these attackers will not find a single Israeli soldier target and they will then notice what an absolute pig sty that Gaza really is and that the palis they felt sorry for, well, they’ll find out why the Arab world has always turned their back on them. My guess is they’ll be heading home to Algeria soon – serve ’em right if Egypt doesn’t let em out of the hell hole.

Full story is here.

Algeria: Eight would-be suicide bombers ‘headed to Gaza’, says report

Algiers, 10 March (AKI) – Eight would-be suicide bombers left eastern Algeria a few days ago and are reportedly heading to the Gaza Strip to commit suicide attacks against Israeli soldiers, reported pan Arab daily al-Sharq al-Awsat on Monday.The young men reportedly left their homes days ago without saying anything to their families.Reportedly, their intent is to join Hamas’ armed wing, the Izzadin al-Qassam brigades, considered a terrorist organisation by the European Union, the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom.It is reported that the eight were driven to go to Gaza after the grim images broadcasted by Arab satellite TV stations showing the dead, following Israel’s military operation against alleged Palestinian rocket crews.The raids in late February lasted five-days and left 125 people dead, half of them civilians, Israeli sources said, citing medical officials. The report said that after a few days, two of the would-be bombers reached Gaza and called their parents saying they were in good health and that they wanted ‘to carry out a suicide attack against the Jews.’The eight men, aged between 18 and 24 come from the village of al-Raqiba in the province of Wadi, about 600 kilometres from the capital Algiers.

    How convenient that Algeria knows but does nothing.
