Barrage of Rockets On Israel Following a Chief Terrorist’s Assasination

Earlier today, Israeli aircrafts targeted a chief terrorist in Gaza and fired at his car, killing both him and another terrorist who was riding with him in his car (recently freed in the Gilad Shalit swap deal… and already back to associating with terrorists).

The chief terrorist was the secretary-general of The Popular Resistance Committee, Zuhir al-Qaisi, responsible for firing rockets onto civilians as well as planning and executing terror attacks through the Israeli-Egyptian border, like in August 18th.

The other terrorist is Ahmad al-Khanini, a convicted terrorist released last October in the aforementioend swap deal. Before his arrest, he headed a terror cell in The West Bank. His terror provided explosive belts for suicide bombers, one of which was caught on route to blow himself up in Jerusalem.

The Popular Resistance Commitee was one of the terror groups that kidnapped and held Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit captive for 1,940 days.

Last August, though Israel had intellegence about the terror attack (which it was unable to stop due to the assumption that the terrorists won’t cross the border in broad daylight near Egyptian army posts) and the whereabouts of the PRC’s leaders in Gaza, it decieded to not attack / assasinate the PRC leaders, in fear of an escalation. That didn’t help – in a terror attack that killed 8 Israelis, and wounded dozens, a round of escalation and rocket barrage were fired, and even causes fatalities. The Security Council, of course, failed to condemn the terror attack on civlians.

This time it was decieded to attack a chief terrorist in the hopes of ruining the shaping terror attack from coming to fruition.

The terrorists in Gaza of course did not fail to respond. While Israel specifially fired at a terrorists’ car, they are shooting wherever’s possible, blindly and with the hopes of hitting as many innocent civilans as possible.

At the time of writing these lines, over 40 rockets have been launched from the Gaza Strip. So far, 8 people were injured. 3 rocket launches were thwarted (killing 3 additional terrorists as they were about to fire). The Iron Dome defense system intercepted over 10 rockets about to hit residential areas.
