One of the commanders of the Islamic Jihad military wing was killed Tuesday night in an IAF air strike in the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun. Local sources reported that five members of his family were also casualties in the attack.
Encouraging one’s family to remain in a war zone and to act as human shields comes in accordance with standard Gaza terrorist policy. It is also the result of the constant incitement and psychological conditioning that Palestinian Authority residents are subjected to from birth to the grave via all their media outlets — including those controlled by the Western-backed so-called ‘peace partner’ and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas, whose nom de guerre is Abu Mazen.
Abbas, who signed a unity pact with Hamas in May, has yet to denounce the agreement despite ample evidence — and stated intent — of the terrorist group’s goal of annihilating the State of Israel. The United States continues to endorse the Palestinian Authority unity government (PUG) but denies Hamas is a participant in that government, despite numerous photos documenting its membership.
