Israel killed the military commander of Hamas in an airstrike on the Gaza Strip on Wednesday following days of exchanging fire in a confrontation that could lead Israel to invade the Palestinian enclave.
The attack, which represented a restart of Israel’s campaign of targeted assassinations in Gaza, came despite the fact that Hamas proposed a ceasefire days ago and despite signs that Egypt had managed to broker a truce. Israel ignored both overtures.
This latest surge of violence between Israel and Gaza militants occurred after Israel shot and killed at least two Gazans and intruded into Gaza with tanks and bulldozers. In response, Gaza militants fired a missile at an Israeli army jeep, wounding four soldiers – to which Israel responded with an extended bombardment of airstrikes that killed at least 7 people and wounded dozens. Hamas then began firing missiles into southern Israel.
The Israeli leadership is now reportedly considering an expanded war with Gaza, potentially including a ground invasion.
“The days we face in the south will, in my estimation, prove protracted,” Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai told Israeli media. “There are preparations, and if we are required to, the option of a entry by ground is available.”
Hamas confirmed that Ahmed Al-Jaabari, who ran the organization’s armed wing, was killed along with a passenger after their car was hit by an Israeli missile. Israel’s Shin Bet domestic intelligence service the killing was because of his “decade-long terrorist activity”.

Another western style fight (poorly armed "savages" with bow and arrow against fire weapons of the civilized cavallry heroes).
With Fighter jets and tanks against a lightly armed militia:
And in both cases the narrative is the same: the real aggressor is the "defender of freedom" and the victim is the evil.
This is Israel, this is their "democracy", this is why they are called the "only democracy" in Middle East, this is what is a falsified democracy, a made up intity said to be democracy by the Western European so as USA falsified democracy, a non functioning entity of vulture capitalism with all kind of rethoric that israel is "democracy" and therefor their inhuman actions are based on vulture democracy. It was palestin not Israel, from1970s and after stealing the Palestinians lands, demolishing their homes, the very "democratic" governments of the western "civilization" started to change the map into Israel, now the very same team of thieves and murders collectively wanting to demolish what is left of Palestine, a dream by those that are nothing but a falsified democracy and will remain as one even if they call themselves "social democrats" or democrats, off course the right wing social democrats hand in hand with a falsified democracy orchestrated by vulture capitalism for now have the upper hand acting as the liberal fascism.
Israel is a rogue State. Israel should be wiped off. Not the Jews, the genuine Jews, but Israel which is a negation of Judaism.
Zionism should be wiped off the map.

isreal are mass murdering nutjobs
Gaza militants fired more than 115 rockets into Israel since Nov. 10. Then they asked for a cease fire. If you were Israel, what would you do? Strike back and show that force is met with force or lay down and allow yourself to be wiped off the map?
