In Operation Protective Edge, IAF strikes homes belonging to Hamas members that have been used as command and control centers.
In recent air strikes on Gaza, all of the homes of Hamas brigade commanders have been destroyed, Israel Radio reported early on Wednesday
According to a report by the Palestinian news agency Ma'an, one of the homes targeted was that of senior Islamic Jihad terrorist Hafiz Mohammed Hamad. In the strike early on Tuesday, Hamad and five of his family members were reportedly killed.
In a separate incident, a joint IDF-Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) operation struck a vehicle containing a commander of Hamas's naval commando unit, Muhammad Sa'aban, aged 24, on Tuesday.
Palestinian media reported that four Hamas people in total were killed in the targeted strike on the vehicle.
Sa'aban's commando unit operated in northern Gaza, security forces said. He was immediately killed in the strike. Sa'aban was a resident of Jabalia in Gaza.
The strike came hours after the IDF launched Operation Protective Edge in an effort to quell increased rocket fire from Gaza into southern Israel in recent weeks.
Later on Tuesday, the air force struck three homes in Gaza used by Hamas as command and control centers for enabling rocket fire against Israel.
The homes belonged to Muhammad Sba'at, a senior member of Hamas's rocket launching formations in Beit Hanount, who was involved in several recent rocket attacks against Israel, Amin Ibrahim Al-Alba'an, a Hamas member, and Abu Jarad, a Hamas member from northern Gaza who has been engaged in terrorism against Israel.
Palestinians said six people were killed and about 25 wounded in one of the houses attacked.
Some 100 targets in Gaza have been struck by the IAF since the operation began, including homes used by Hamas and Islamic Jihad members, underground rocket launchers, underground attack tunnels, remote rocket launch infrastructure, training camps, and additional centers of terrorist activities.
Since midnight Tuesday, some 30 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip have exploded in Israel.
The Iron Dome anti-rocket system has intercepted six rockets.
Palestinians say that a total of 24 people have been killed in IAF strikes since Operation Defensive Edge began.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Seems to me a house being used as a command and control center, or to launch attacks, or build bombs, or hide arms has lost it's status as a house. Same for Mosques.
No doubt there will be lots of staged funerals. Will any of them be like the one where they dropped the casket and the “deceased” got up, looked around, and ran away?
If they knew where these savages lived, why didn’t they take them out before now? World opinion will never be on the side of Israel, so just get on with the dirty work necessary to survival.

Must have been pretty crowded at that wedding...
Israel called them first to tell them to get out of course
Politicians in Israel mirror the spineless wienies we have in the USA. The only difference is that in Israel, they sometimes face being murdered en masse. Not all are sufficiently suicidal to avoid defending themselves. But make no mistake, they are still mostly pathetic wienies.
I didn't see that one but I did see one where the crowd so jostled the procession that the corpse almost fell out.
The problem is that the phone call heads-up is all the palleees need to evacuate the murderers simultaneously while they forcefully inject innocent women and children.
Gotta ensure that the "right" people are in the house for the airstrike and news photo-ops.
Do the Palestinians actually produce anything the world can use? Or are they simply parasites who take up space, cause trouble, and impede the progess of productive countries like Israel? I’m inclined to believe the latter. The sad facts are the world could get along quite nicely without most of the mideast Muslims.
It is still more dangerous to be living in Chicago than in this “war zone”...
I hope they were occupied at the time.
That’s very true. And this will end, the violence on the streets of Chicago won’t.
Warning them is beyond ordinary stupid if you ask me. Just bomb them until nothing twitches. Then bomb it again.
Hamas Super-GRAD Firing Instructions
1. Fire n`
3. Run into house with family
Probably not, they learn from their mistakes. They’ll shoot the actor first this time.
It’s a start.
