A rare event transpired on 28 June, 2014 as security cameras in Gaza happened to catch on film yet another assassination by Israel of an unarmed civilian. Assassinations are, of course, illegal, but that hasn’t ever stopped Israel before, and won’t in the future unless it faces overwhelmingly painful consequences. Yedioth Ahronoth, Israel’s most widely read newspaper (peruse the comments for a truly hair-raising peek into the sick minds of the majority of Israeli Jews) reported this.
Security cameras located in the al-Shati refugee camp in the Gaza Strip documented the targeted assassination by the Israeli Air Force on Friday. The two, both senior members of Al-Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, were killed while driving in a civilian vehicle [The two men were not engaged in violence or any hostile actions when assassinated, which constitutes yet another war crime on Israel’s part. -ed] near Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh’s home.
The defense establishment said that the two – Muhammad al-Fasih and Usama al-Hassumi – had been involved in rocket launchings into Israel in recent weeks. [The proper and legal course of action, of course, is to arrest them and take them to court. But that is not quite as satisfying to Jewish lust for bloodshed of Gentiles and thirst for vengeance. -ed]
Hours after the IAF carried out the targeted assassination on Friday, Gaza militants fired rockets into southern communities in Israel, with no injuries reported.
Six rockets were fired into from Gaza into Israeli territory and a mortar shell exploded near the border fence between Gaza and Israel. Two of the rockets fired were shot down by the Iron Dome anti missile system while the other four fell in open areas in the Eshkol Regional Council.
In response to the rocket fire, the Israeli Air Force attacked four
terror targets in the Gaza Strip overnight Friday.
The assassination in Gaza was carried out after an explosive device detonated near the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip on Friday morning. There were no casualties. A military vehicle operating in the area was lightly damaged.
IDF tanks returned fire on suspicious positions across the fence and the site of the incident was isolated by Israeli forces which were deployed to search the area.
