After months and months of escalating a rocket attacks on Israel by Hamas the Israelis have finally had enough.
…more than 700 have struck Israel since the beginning of the year, and more than 120 since Saturday – the IDF has launched a widespread campaign against terror targets in Gaza. The operation, called Pillar of Defense, has two main goals: to protect Israeli civilians and to cripple the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza.
Hamas has taken to televising and advertising their rocket attacks on Israel..little wonder then that the IDF took out Ahmad Jabari, the operational commander of Hamas’s armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.
