"Massive" Explosion in Gaza KILLS Palestinian Islamic Jihad Leader ! ! !
9 Comments

AL-QUDS BRIGADE CONFIRMS THE DEATH OF LEADER BAHAA ABU AL-ATTA DUE TO AN ISRAEL AIRSTRIKE EAST OF SHIJAIA NEIGHBORHOOD IN GAZA!

Smoke was seen rising from the scene and ambulances quickly headed to the scene, according to Quds.

The explosions occurred as IAF planes were flying in the area, but the reasons for the explosion are still unknown.

The head of Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s (PIJ) Al-Quds Brigades in Gaza, Baha Abu al-Ata is considered one of the top terrorists in the blockaded coastal enclave.

While Hamas is the ruling party in the Gaza Strip, the group has in recent years been losing control over the street; and the vacuum was being filled by Ata, Tehran’s main man in Gaza.

This targeted assassination is a major escalation: Israel assassinated Baha' Abu al-'Ata, the commander of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad's northern sector in Gaza. He pushed for more aggressive action toward Israel. All schools will be closed in southern Israel expecting retaliation.

Tel Aviv stations being shut down. Palestinian Resistance targeting Tel Aviv from Gaza. Everything at a standstill from Gaza border to Tel Aviv. I don't think the Israelis thought Tel Aviv would be targeted. Sending the settlers in a panic.

IDF confirms 50 rockets fired at Israel from Gaza, 20 intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defence system. For the first time since 2014 schools and businesses shut in Tel Aviv because of the attacks. This is the biggest escalation since May 2019 when 100s of rockets were fired. 

 An Israeli ground offensive into GAZA has been scheduled for later tonight. . .

    I see the missiles from Gaza are easily reaching the Tel Aviv area............

    Nasrallah warned these zionist clowns a few months ago that Tel Aviv was an easy target from Gaza. Imagine that!

      Nasrallah warned them? The Zionists warned the post-Zionist, post-Jewish government of Israel that very thing before Gaza was evacuated years ago.

    I'm glad they got him. Something in this photo is highly disturbing. I hate to say it but it looks like a micro neutron bomb was deployed. If they can be minutuarised, that's even more disturbing than even the use thereof.

    The IDF should drive them all into the sea, since brutality is the only language they know. They'll only have to do it once.

      This was a targeted killing of an enemy. Terrorists (read: Arabs) engage in random killing.

            The zionist state IS a terrorist state. I am sure you have no knowledge of the USS Liberty incident.

            The zionist state has a long history of assassinations.

            The reason the zionist state was started was to destabilize the ME and KEEP it destabilized, forever.

            Grow up Paul.

              His self, what's your problem with Jews? The real problem is Islamic terrorism and the people who support and perpetrate it. How would you like for someone to target, say, your family, home, business, etc.? Israel is a sovereign and independent nation that just wants to live in peace but your scumbag muslim friends won't allow that. And it's the muslims, not jews, who destabilize the ME and keep it that way. A religion called Islam is the real problem over there. And spare me the crap about the holocaust being a hoax. I had a relative who took part in the liberation of Dachau and saw some of the results for himself. He had the toughest time telling me about it when I was a kid growing up in the 60s. It was real and it happened. So go somewhere else with your Nazi propaganda.
