In the past hour, the IDF targeted Ahmed Jabari, the head of Hamas’ military wing, in the Gaza Strip. Jabari was a senior Hamas operative who served in the upper echelon of the Hamas’ command and was directly responsible for executing terror attacks against the State of Israel in the past number of years.
The purpose of this operation was to severely impair the command and control chain of the Hamas leadership, as well as its terrorist infrastructure. This was a surgical operation in cooperation with the Israeli Security Agency, that was implemented on the basis of concrete intelligence and using advanced capabilities.
The IDF will continue to target sites that are used for carrying out terror attacks against the citizens of Israel while improving their daily security.
