The head of Hamas’ military wing, Ahmed Jafari, has been killed in an Israeli airstrike, both Hamas and Israel confirm, as the IDF announces a widespread campaign on “terror targets” and begins bombing the Gaza Strip.

The operation, called “Pillar of Defense”, has been launched by the Israel military. Many of the buildings in the downtown Gaza City are on fire after being attacked by Israeli warplanes, RT’s Arabic correspondent Saed Swerky reports on Twitter.

Hamas has said an Israeli air strike in Gaza killed Ahmed Jabari, the head of its military wing, in an attack on a vehicle on Wednesday.

The military wing of Hamas said in a statement that the assassination “has opened the gates of hell”.

Israel’s military said the strike was the “start of targetting Gaza militants”, according to AFP.

Witnesses say Jabari was travelling in his vehicle in Gaza City when his car exploded.

Jabari is the most senior Hamas official to be killed since an Israeli invasion of Gaza four years ago. He has long topped Israel’s most-wanted list, the Associated Press reported.

Israeli officials had said in recent days that they were considering assassinating top Hamas officials following a wave of heavy rocket fire from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

The IDF has in recent minutes struck over 20 underground rocket launchers belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad in an airstrike.

The airstrikes targeted long-range rockets in the possession of terror organizations, such as the fajr-5 and other rockets that are capable of striking Tel Aviv from Gaza.

IDF spokesman Yoav Mordechai said that Gaza is a “forward Iranian base,” adding that the latest campaign of air strikes targeted most of the long-range offensive capabilities in the hands of Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

    IDF: “Pillar of Defense” is not limited operation, it’s response to 11 years of rocket attacks”

    What about the 63 years of Israeli terrorism directed towards Palestinians? And who is REALLY firing those rockets into Israel? If this is not a “limited operation”, once more we will see the wanton slaughter of innocent defenseless people. Both Israelis and Palestinians should be safe from attacks, but this vulgar display of militarism only makes the situation far worse. Let’s see if Obama grew a pair of balls or if Israel goes ahead with another mass murder to put another nail its its own coffin! If Israel would sit down with a DULY-ELECTED group(Hamas) and bargain in a fair open manner, this “terrorism” would not happen. Israel does not want peace, only land.
