The Lid has the latest out of Israel. So much for Obama bringing peace to the middle east.
After suffering through hundreds of rocket attacks coming from Gaza (more than 700 have struck Israel since the beginning of the year, and more than 120 since Saturday) earlier today IDF directed a precision attack on Ahmed Jabri, the head of Hamas’ military wing in the Gaza Strip.
Jabri was a senior operative of the terrorist group and was directly responsible for executing terror attacks against the Jewish State in the past number of years.
IDF Spokesman Brgi. Gen. Yoav (Poly) Moredechai said that tonight, “we struck a blow to the command and control of Hamas when we hit Ahmed al-Jabari, head of Hamas’ Military Wing in the Gaza Strip, who headed the organization and personally directed and ordered terrorist attacks against Israel. We are opening a broad attack, given the intolerable situation of the residents of the South.”
Read the whole thing. Also, in a blogger briefing, Israel’s IDF held a conference call with some bloggers and explained that the goal is to protect Israeli citizens and “cripple terror organization.”
