Boom! Video shows Israeli Air Force strike on Hamas Military Chief’s car in the Gaza Strip

Just released by the Israeli Air Force, the following video shows how the the IDF targeted and killed Ahmed Jabri, the head of Hamas’ military wing in the Gaza Strip.

The car in which the senior Hamas operative was moving was surgically wiped out with a PGM (Precision Guided Munition) – most probably a missile fired by a gunship helicopter.

According to the IAF website, Jabri had increased rocket fire from the Gaza Strip: approximately 10,000 rockets have been fired at Israel since he assumed the position.

The urban strike is part of a wider operation dubbed Pillar of Defense, targeting “terror organizations’ underground rocket launching capabilities and munitions ware houses that are owned by Hamas and other terror organizations.”
