In a joint operation of the IDF and the ISA (Israel Security Agency, or Shin Bet security service), a Global Jihad-affiliated terrorist has been targeted by an IAF aircraft in the northern Gaza Strip, in retaliation for rocket fire aimed at Israel. A direct hit was confirmed.

The targeted terrorist was Hithem Ziad Ibrahim Masshal, a 24-year-old resident of the Shati Refugee Camp.

On April 17, 2013, Masshal was involved in the Shura Council organization’s firing of rockets at the southern Israeli city of Eilat.

Masshal was active in different Jihad Salafi terror organizations and over the past few years has been a key terror figure, specializing in weapons and working with all of the terror organizations in the Gaza Strip.

Masshal manufactured, improved and traded different types of ammunition. He specialized in rockets and explosive devices, which he sold to terror organizations. He assisted the Shura Council of the Mujahaideen in Jerusalem, an organization consisting of Salafi operatives under the Global Jihad, and he was involved in extensive terror activity against Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers.

    That won't stop them, not enough pain and suffering for those who dare to kill our people, our children as they go to school. Let us bomb Gaza so that it is uninhabitable for these filthy Hamasniks- they like living well, with their mansions, their clubs, their fancy malls, their abundant market palces— why not disturb their inner peace, make them live in sewer pipes like my friends, Anita and Stewart Tucker of Gush Katiff. They used to have a thriving farm and home and community- friends, family- now they are reduced to a caravella, and when rockets strike, they sit huddled in sewage pipes with their granddaughters, as the rockets are launched from their old neighborhood.

  2. Dvorah Bee says:

    ho hum – call me when they have killed 10,000 Hamasniks and wiped out their electric grid. Then I will know we mean business, and not more of the same old. These people are hankering for a showdown, and unless they receive one, they will not stop their war of attrition which is having effects on the citizens, and the children, who are suffering terrible psychologically

  3. I totally agree with you. The only thing Hamas understands is FORCE and RETALIATION

  4. Anya Khan says:

    and the punk had no concern over those whom he hid behind.

  5. Ron Kall says:

    If these arab murderers know that their own families will also be eliminated , then, just maybe some of them will be discouraged to try and kill Jews! Just maybe!
