Israeli Video show Targeted Strike on Hamas Leader

The video above, released this afternoon by the Israeli Defense Forces, shows what they claim to be the targeted strike that killed Hamas leader Ahmed Jabri.

The death of Jabri,the head of the military wing of Hamas, was confirmed to various media outlet by both Israeli and Palestinian representatives. Israel launched a number of air strikes against Hamas this morning, the first major incursion into Gaza by the IDF in four years.

From the video description:

On Nov. 11, 2012, the IDF targeted Ahmed Jabri, the head of Hamas’ military wing, in the Gaza Strip. Jabri was a senior Hamas operative who served in the upper echelon of the Hamas’ command and was directly responsible for executing terror attacks against Israel in the past.

The IDF has a strong presence on the internet, and are currently offering updates through their blog and twitter feed.
