Israel murders senior Islamic Jihad official and his wife in Gaza

MEMO | November 12, 2019

The Israeli occupation army announced on Tuesday that it had killed a senior military official of Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip. Bahaa Abu Al-Ata was killed in what was described as a complicated joint operation with the internal security agency Shin Bet.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that Abu Al-Ata and his wife Asmaa were killed in an Israeli air strike on their house in the east of Gaza City. It also confirmed that their children Salim, Mohammed Layan and Fatima, as well as their neighbour Hanan Hellis, were wounded in the same attack. All are in a stable condition in hospital.

In its own statement on the murder of Abu Al-Ata, Islamic Jihad also announced that a member of its Political Bureau, Akram Al-Ajjouri, survived an Israeli attack on his house in Damascus, although his son and a number of bodyguards were killed.

“These terrorist crimes are a new aggression against the Palestinian people and the declaration of a new Israeli war on them,” said the movement. It blamed the occupation authorities for any consequent escalation in the Gaza Strip. “The Israeli occupation crossed all the red lines with its new crimes which shattered all efforts being made towards the truce and tranquillity.”

Other Palestinian factions, including Hamas, Fatah and the Popular and Democratic Fronts, condemned the Israeli “aggression” and also blamed Israel for any escalation.

  1. These satanic psychotically criminal Zionist bastards have simply got to be brought to heel. How?

    (The ZioMSM Ziospin machine is already in full twist-and-turn… The Ziomonster “has the right to defend itself,” with “faux news” reports studiously affecting a neutral position that the Ziomonster “measure was taken to ensure that its interests and security are assured.”)

    I just saw that seven Gazans are now murdered victims of the Ziobastards in the last 24 hours or so….

  2. They’re pretty adept at bombarding defenceless people from the air, but they’re otherwise hopelessly incompetent and cowardly to boot. They will not endure.
