In what the Shin Bet is calling one of the most successful intelligence-based operations since Operation Pillar of Defense began last week, four senior Islamic Jihad terrorists were hit during an airstrike on a high-rise building in Gaza City, Monday afternoon.
It’s the second strike on the building in two days. The Hamas TV station, Al Aqsa, is located on the top floor. The building also houses the offices of Britain’s Sky News and Saudi-owned Al Arabiya Channel. Most journalists left the premises on Sunday following the initial strike.
Islamic Jihad identified the dead men as Ramiz Harb, one of its senior commanders.
Bahu al-Ata, an Islamic Jihad commander who is involved in the incessant firing of rockets toward Israel, was also in the building during the attack. Another terrorist, Taysir Jabari, who has orchestrated numerous attacks on Israel was also wiped out.
Another terrorist killed in the surgical airstrike was Hallil Bahatini, a senior Islamic Jihad commander who has also played a key role in the rocket fire on Israel’s south.

Why should we trust information from Islamic Jihad about the dead. Couldn’t they be claiming that the leadersdied so that they can continue their mission foe wordwide Jihad without fear of being actuially killed?
yaakov doe, you give those roitzchim more credit. B”H four less cockroaches to deal with.
Too bad the journalists left, could have killed two birds with one stone – the terrorists themselves and their international propaganda wing
Why is it that when an Arab terrorist is mentioned (especially when they’ve been zapped), they are referred to as a SENIOR commander or officer or whatever. Are there no Juniors in the arab terrorist hierarchy?
