  • Israel kills Hamas top military leader, destroys Hamas Fajar missiles

    In a precise targeted attack early today (Wednesday), the Israel Defense Force (IDF) killed Ahmad Jabari, the top military leader of Hamas. Jabari ran the organization’s armed wing, called the Izz el-Deen Al-Qassam.

      From that link:

      The Israeli early morning strikes also included attacks about twenty or so targets across the Gaza Strip. These attacks inflicted a heavy blow on Hamas’s military capabilities by destroying most of Hamas’s most threatening weapons – the mid-range Fajar missiles Hamas received from Iran and with which the organization could attack Tel Aviv and other cities in central Israel.
      Within hours of the assassination of the Hamas commander, the IDF released video of the strike.



      I'd love to know how the Israelis get such accurate targeting information.

          Well, he won't be missed.

          I for one would like to see Israel systematically destroy every Hamas leader and operative they can get their hands on.

          Obviously these people grow like cancer cells, but killing a terrorist every Sunday at least would be a great way to start the week.

            As Hamas retaliates with hundreds of rocket attacks, Israel needs to force those Lame Stream Media types to live in ground zero with their civilians for the next several days before they obliterate the section of Gaza where those rockets are being launched from.

                  I say I want a winner. Let them fight until both say they will never fight again or one side is dead. That is preferable to the never-ending violence and terror both sides are subjected to.

                    Bit of a contradiction there, don't you think?

                      No, if they fight once all out, no holds barred, until they are finished it is over and probably over in a matter of months at most. Yes, there will be huge numbers of casualties and tremedous property destruction but the war is finished and done. No more generational warfare dragging on for decades and even centuries. No more wanting revenge for some act one or the other side carried out.

                      Done. One side dead or both sides so worn out by fighting they decide it is never worth doing again.

                      Now, that probably means the Palestinians are wiped out as an ethnic group and the Israelis occupy every square inch of their territory but that's fine with me. If the Palestinians win that's fine too. I want a winner. One war, one fight, and it's done.

                        The Israeli military released footage showing what it said was its air force targeting Hamas Fajr missile infrastructure in the Gaza Strip in an airstrike. A day earlier Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told reporters that most of Hamas' Fajr missiles were destroyed in the first hour of the Israeli army's assault on the Gaza Strip.

                          Yep if someone was lobbing missiles at me on a daily basis I would go to war with them.

                          I think its time for Israel to clear gaza and send the refuges to the west bank. And if they still cause trouble kick them out of there.

                            Israel just announced they were calling up over 30,000 of their Reservists for immediate military service. Sounds like the Palestinians are going to get righteously thumped-on. Get some Israel!!.

                              Rockets hit near Tel Aviv as Gaza death toll rises

                              By Nidal al-Mughrabi | Reuters – 1 hr 46 mins ago

                              GAZA (Reuters) - Two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip targeted Tel Aviv on Thursday in the first attack on Israel's commercial capital in 20 years, raising the stakes in a showdown between Israel and the Palestinians that is moving toward all-out war.

                              The article suggests one motivation for the timing of Hamas attacks. The government in Egypt is still relatively weak. A new round of fighting puts the Palestinians back in the news and provides their supporters in Egypt with rhetorical ammunition to use in levering the government into a change of policy towards Hamas, then Gaza, and eventually Israel.
