"Bergman relates in detail the many operations undertaken by the nascent state that foiled an Egyptian rocket program, broke the backs of Palestinian commandos operating from Gaza, penetrated Syrian intelligence, and bugged the flat in Germany where young Palestinian activists planned raids into Israel."
By Palestinian Commandos the author (of the article not Bergman) means the Fedayeen likely those who were prompted by Egypt after the Egyptian occupation of Gaza and the dissolution of the "All-Palestinian" government by Nasser because they didn't fit into his plan.
The Fedayeen exclusively target civilians and foreign officials in Israel so while they primarily used guerrilla tactics and performed mainly cross border raids calling them commandos is a bit of a stretch.
Also "young Palestinian activists planned raids into Israel" is laughable if you don't want to call them terrorists that's fine but the only other appropriate word to use here is militants or combatants as they weren't planning to organize a dance off but attacks on civilian targets within Israel.
Unless you honestly think Barack "drone strikes" Obama deserved his.
