Bragging goes before a fall...

...especially if you are up against the IDF. The Washington Post reports:
Israeli Army Kills Top Militant

BALATA REFUGEE CAMP, West Bank -- Israeli troops on Thursday killed five Palestinians, including a top militant who said just a day earlier that he would never be caught, in the largest West Bank military operation since Israel's pullout from the Gaza Strip last summer. (...) One of those killed Thursday was identified as Mohammed Shtawi, a top Al Aqsa fugitive. On Wednesday, Shtawi told an AP reporter that earlier in the day soldiers surrounded his hideout for five hours, but he and several friends slipped away. "They will never catch me," he said at the time.
Well, they really did not catch him.
