IDF Air Strike on Head of Hamas

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - An Israeli airstrike killed the commander of the Hamas military wing in Gaza Wednesday and Israel pounded dozens of targets in Gaza in the most intense attack since an Israeli offensive four years ago. The killing of Ahmad Jabari marked a dramatic resumption of Israel's policy of assassinating Palestinian militant leaders and the Israeli military said it was the beginning of a major offensive codenamed "Pillar of Defense." Palestinians called for harsh retaliation. The airstrikes came after a weekend exchange of Gaza rocket fire and Israeli airstrikes appeared to have abated. The Israeli offensive was likely to re-ignite the conflict.

    "The airstrikes came after a weekend exchange of Gaza rocket fire and Israeli airstrikes?" The truth is that Hamas has been lobbing rockets into nearby Israeli towns for years, sending people regularly into bomb shelters sometimes for the whole night! Who should have to live like that? The week heading up to this assassination saw literally hundreds of rockets shot out of Gaza into civilian neighborhoods and schoolyards - BEFORE Israel retaliated at all. Recently in Sederot the first schoolyard had a protective dome shielding the playground. How sad...

    Let's not forget the 7 year old girl that was murdered in the same strike. You can not bring every criminal to justice but you can save children's lives. Pursue the criminals but excessive force is never an excuse to kill child.

    I have noticed that the biased press only seems to have cameras when the Gaza dead are paraded. The Israeli dead are never shown. The 1000s of missles lobbed into Israel are never reported, until Israel has had enough. The Gaza residents are the immigrants, nit the Jews.

    Re-ignite? The conflict has never stopped to re-ignite. This conflict has been burning since biblical times. These fires have never been quenched and will continue until all people realise how evil this and all wars are. All people have the right to peace without the fear of death at the hands of their neighbor.
