The IDF targets and kills a known terrorist, "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 Israel in the past."
The way this pinpoint strike was carried out against a killer stands in stark contrast to the actions that prompted it: hundreds of lethal unguided rockets fired into Israel by Hamas and assorted jihadist terror groups in recent weeks, meant to terrorize civilians.
It goes without saying that Israel's restraint over the past weeks has been a non-story in the media. As a thought experiment, guess how many rockets the USA would accept on its territory if Mexican terrorists intent on "liberating territory" began shooting. Or, if Colombia was enduring a similar bombardment from Venezuela. How long would it take for them to strike back? Would they need to worry about condemnation of the international community for striking against their killers?
