Responding to over 800 rockets fired in recent weeks and months against Israeli civilians by Hamas and other terror organizations in Gaza, Israel has launched Operation Pillar of Defense. In a pinpoint operation aimed at severely impairing Hamas’ ability to strike Israel and place over one million Israelis within the range of fire, the IDF targeted Ahmed Jabri, head of Hamas’ military wing, as well as numerous long range rocket sites in Gaza capable of striking Tel Aviv. Jabri was personally responsible for countless terror attacks against Israel in recent years, including the recent rocket assault escalation. No country in the world would tolerate having its civilians placed under such a massive wave of rocket fire for months and years on end. Israel will continue to take those measures necessary to defend its civilian population.
