Targeted Assassination in Gaza: Senior Hamas terrorist eliminated in Israeli airstrike

BREAKING: Muslim terrorist Hamad Ahmad Khudari, a senior member of the Hamas armed wing Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, whose sole mission is to murder Israelis, has been eliminated as the result of an IDF targeted elimination in central Gaza.

Arabs report that the 34-year-old Muslim terrorist was eliminated by an Israeli strike on his car in central Gaza.

In a dramatic escalation, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit confirmed the targeted assassination, adding that Ahmad Khudari was responsible for the transfer of funds from Iran to the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups in Gaza.

A security source said that at the beginning of the discussions on the fighting in Gaza, the cabinet instructed the Israel Defense Forces to intensify the attacks against the terrorist organizations and to add to the forces around Gaza.

The IDF has released a video of the targeted assassination.

Earlier today, Minister Gilad Erdan said: “we must increase our reaction in Gaza until there is quiet, and to return to targeted assassinations.”

Three Israelis who were critically injured in rocket attacks from Gaza have been pronounced dead in Ashkelon’s Barzilai Medical Center.

A 58-year-old Israeli man was killed in the city of Ashkelon and dozens were wounded across southern Israel overnight, as a result of over 450 rockets that were fired into Israel by Muslim terrorists in Gaza.

The massive rocket attacks occurred in advance of Israel’s Independence Day and 10 days before the Eurovision Song Contest.

Israel has bombed over 200 terror targets in Gaza, including private homes of more than 30 Muslim terrorists mid-level commanders of the Islamic Jihad and Hamas terror groups.

The IDF is currently widening its air strikes and began moving tanks toward the Gaza border, preparing for an escalation that will last a number of days.

The IAF destroyed underground infrastructure for making rockets, leading to secondary explosions from the explosive materials.

The Hamas-run Gaza health ministry says ten ‘innocent civilians’, including a pregnant woman and a toddler have been killed since Friday afternoon, when the current flareup with Israel began after an IDF officer and a female soldier were wounded by Muslim terrorists who opened fire, leading to a retaliatory strike by the IDF. 

The IDF confirmed the death of a pregnant woman and toddler, however, the Islamic Jihad was responsible for a rocket that fell on a Gazan home in a jihadi workplace accident, killing Saleh Abu Arar and Saba Abu Arar.

Three of the eliminated terrorists have been identified as members of the Hamas terror group and three others as members of Islamic Jihad.

Four of the Muslim terrorists were eliminated in the strikes that followed the shooting attack on Friday.

In a joint statement, Hamas and the Iranian-backed Islamic Jihad terror groups threatened to increase the range of the rockets launched at Israel.

A pregnant mother and her 14-month-old baby were killed in Gaza due to a rocket fired from Gaza that fell short and missed its target of Israeli civilians.

As usual, anti-Israel propagandists and Israel-haters try to use this Jihad-induced tragedy to smear Israel.
