Israel Assassinates Hamas Army's "Chief Of Staff" In Precision Airstrike, Hamas Vows "Infernal" Response

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Update: Israel CDS 145/155, +6 bps

In a move that is certain to aggravate the already frayed relations between Israel and the Palestine, not to mention send Brent spiking, moments ago the IAF, in a precision airstrike, assassinated Ahmed Jaabari, the head of Hamas' armed wing - a position that is equivalent to Chief of Staff - together with his son, who were travelling in a car at the moment of the strike. And, as expected, the furious Hamas response has already been logged and promises much more death and escalation in the near term.

From Times of Israel:

The IDF confirmed the airstrike on Jaabari and said that it had launched a “widespread campaign on terror sites and operatives in the Gaza Strip, chief among them Hamas and Islamic Jihad targets.”

“By nature of his position, Jaabari has been responsible over the past decade for all anti-Israel terror activity emanating from the [Gaza] Strip, the Shin Bet security agency said in a statement.

Palestinians reported that there had been additional IAF airstrikes in Khan Yunis and Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

Jaabari was credited with being one of the leaders of Hamas’s violent putsch to take control of the Gaza Strip in 2007, and masterminded the professionalization of the Hamas military.

Israel attempted to kill Jaabari in an airstrike in 2004, but ended up killing his eldest son, his brother, and several cousins instead.

Israel's official stance, is that the assassination is in retaliation to a recent surge in shelling out of Gaza:

On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would not abide the ongoing rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.

 

“The IDF is operating, and will operate forcefully against the terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip, which are sustaining heavy blows from the IDF,” the prime minister said. “The world needs to understand that Israel will not sit idly by in the face of attempts to attack us. We are prepared to intensify the response.”

 

Although the prime minister didn’t mention any specific avenues of action, Minister of Strategic Affairs Moshe Ya’alon was more specific. “There’s no doubt that in the past two weeks we’ve been witnessing an escalation, which Hamas is responsible for,” Ya’alon told Israel Radio on Sunday. “We aren’t going to let this stand.”

Of course, Hamas has its own reasons to escalate the shelling, which in its view is justified due to ongoing killings by Israel, and so on, and so on, since the beginning of time. And as was to be expected, moments ago:

  • HAMAS SAYS ISRAELI STRIKE HAS "OPENED THE GATES OF HELL"

In other words, Israel is now waging three potential offensive campaigns: Syria, Iran and Gaza. This too, shall end well. If not for everyone, then certainly for Brent bulls.

And from the IDF's blog:

In the past hour, the IDF targeted Ahmed Jabri, the head of Hamas’ military wing, in the Gaza Strip. Jabri 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.

Ahmed Jabari

Ahmed Jabari (far right)

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.

I don't get it...so much anti-Israel sentiment. Arabs and Hamas have an open and admitted policy that they want to kill every Jew in the world and eliminate Israel from the map. Their culture/religion wants religious rule for the globe...that includes us. They openly shout death to USA...that includes us. Muslims attacked US on Sep 11 on our soil. They killed our ambassador several weeks ago. If every American on this site were walking around in a Hamas countrolled village in the Middle East they would likely be taken captive and killed because they're American. AND STILL....................

People take their side against Israel?

How stupid and naive are these people? This is the same mentality that's causing our Constitution to be trampled on here at home. I don't support our wars in the Middle East and other US Empire actions but I have no problem with the Israeli's taking out this known killer and anti-American/anti-Israeli terrorist. Obviously, some here just don't understand how the world works or are motivated by sheer racism and prejudice instead of logic and reason.

The sticking point isn't gaza. You could give the arabs all of Isreal except for Jerusalem and they wouldn't accept. It's a no deal scenario without full control of Jerusalem. Neither side will give it up. To be fair, I'd rather it go to the Jews, since they aren't in the habit of blowing up ancient religious art and artifacts, at least not recently.

Maddened with pain the Snake tried every means he could think of to get rid of the creature, but without success. At last he became desperate, and crying, "Kill you I will, even at the cost of my own life," he laid his head with the Wasp on it under the wheel of a passing waggon, and they both perished together.

I think it was a Fisker Karma.  Those are becoming increasingly popular at riots and flag burnings because they don't need any ignition to combust.

Don't you know that "smart" funds were "waiting" for the 800 million shares to be "released" for consumption?  The previous holders of these shares really didn't want to let them go but are doing investors a "favor" by "allowing" them access.  Also their mobile ad sales were not negative so...they got that going for them.

FB employees must be crazy to sit on a stock given to them after a fall of 50% in 6 months! Surely smart funds already have got burned by the IPO .. why would they want to come back for more. Ive got no axe here, im just curious about whats going on to cause such a sharp move on a day that a much talked about lockup comes due .. i logged in and expected a 10% drop not rise!

Boobburg just had a commercial with the tag line 'be proud - end hate'. Was that paid for by the Jewish lobby?

1 "In those days and at that time, when I will make things better for Judah and Jerusalem, 2 I will gather all the nations together and bring them down into the Valley Where the Lord Judges. There I will judge them, because those nations scattered my own people Israel and forced them to live in other nations. They divided up my land 3 and threw lots for my people. They traded boys for prostitutes, and they sold girls to buy wine to drink. 4 "Tyre and Sidon and all of you regions of Philistia! What did you have against me? Were you punishing me for something I did, or were you doing something to hurt me? I will very quickly do to you what you have done to me. 5 You took my silver and gold, and you put my precious treasures in your temples. 6 You sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks so that you could send them far from their land. 7 "You sent my people to that faraway place, but I will get them and bring them back, and I will do to you what you have done to them. 8 I will sell your sons and daughters to the people of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabean people far away." The Lord said this. 9 Announce this among the nations: Prepare for war! Wake up the soldiers! Let all the men of war come near and attack. 10 Make swords from your plows, and make spears from your hooks for trimming trees. Let even the weak person say, "I am a soldier." 11 All of you nations, hurry, and come together in that place. Lord, send your soldiers to gather the nations. 12 "Wake up, nations, and come to attack in the Valley Where the Lord Judges. There I will sit to judge all the nations on every side. 13 Swing the cutting tool, because the harvest is ripe. Come, walk on them as you would walk on grapes to get their juice, because the winepress is full and the barrels are spilling over, because these people are so evil!" 14 There are huge numbers of people in the Valley of Decision, because the Lord's day of judging is near in the Valley of Decision. 15 The sun and the moon will become dark, and the stars will stop shining. 16 The Lord will roar like a lion from Jerusalem; his loud voice will thunder from that city, and the sky and the earth will shake. But the Lord will be a safe place for his people, a strong place of safety for the people of Israel. 17 "Then you will know that I, the Lord your God, live on my holy Mount Zion. Jerusalem will be a holy place, and strangers will never even go through it again. Joel 3

Why would God need all this drama? If God exists, he/she can roll up a lot more heavy than this crap. Who needs a soldier or a nuke? Your will is enough.

I do not disrespect religion or one's right to believe. Some good things can come out of it. Much of this does not make sense to me. I look to other sources for understanding all this. History. Social sciences. Physical sciences. Philosophy. The funny thing is when you play them all out, they all come to the same place. We just are.
