With rockets continuing to fall throughout southern and central Israel, the military has stepped up its retaliatory attacks. Infrastructure and Hamas targets continue to be hit, while targeted assassinations, a successful method, have begun again.
With over 600 rockets having been fired at Israel over the last 24 hours, Israel has stepped up its retaliatory attacks on the Gaza strip.
Terrorist military bases, rocket launchers and infrastructure targets have been destroyed in air and tank strikes. Targeted assassinations, a successful tactic, has been rejuvenated, with two high profile Hamas members eliminated.
One terrorist killed was Hamed Ahmed Khudari, a Gazan terrorist responsible for transferring Iranian funds to Hamas & PIJ in Gaza. Another was a Hamas military commander.

We just targeted Hamed Ahmed Khudari, a Gazan terrorist responsible for transferring Iranian funds to Hamas & PIJ in Gaza, helping fund their rocket fire at Israelis.
Transferring Iranian money to Hamas & the PIJ doesn’t make you a businessman. It makes you a terrorist. pic.twitter.com/WvGEB16r4h
