Skip to comments.Hamas: Israel Tried to Eliminate Head of 'Military Wing'

Hamas leader Moussa Abu Marzouk accused Israel on Tuesday night of having trying to eliminate the head of the group's military wing, Mohammed Deif, in one of its airstrikes on Gaza.
According to Reuters, Marzouk said Israel had broken the truce that was supposed to expire at midnight in order "to assassinate Mohammed Deif," but that civilians were killed at the site of the attack.
AFP reported that Marzouk said the airstrike killed Deifs wife and child.
"The wife of the great leader was martyred with his daughter," in the strike, he wrote on Facebook while saying nothing about the fate of Deif himself.
Local health officials quoted by Reuters said three people were killed in a strike on a house in Gaza City, including a child and a woman. The third victim was not identified.
Earlier Tuesday, Hamas declared Israel had opened the gates of hell by launching an airstrike on a home in Gaza.
The group warned that the price Israel will pay will be a heavy one.

If they had tried he’d be dead.
They should keep trying.
Time Released BOOM
Unlike muzzie-style removing heads.
Unfortunately, like a rat, he's hard to corner.
The best chance they had was blown because the IAF used a much smaller bomb in order to avoid "civilian" casualties.
They got his wife and kid. Is it for sure he’s still alive?
What’s a “military wing” of a bunch of terrorists that don’t wear uniforms, hide behind palie civilians, aim for Israeli citizens, and don’t abide by Geneva conventions? The guy is a rat and should be exterminated.
I am really surprised that any of the asshole Hamas leaders are still alive!
I think he’s dead. They got him. He’s the third unidentified person. Hamas hasn’t identified him because they don’t want the Israeli’s to know they got him. But I’m sure the Israeli’s know they did. Good intel. Hamas wouldn’t give two hoots that the wife and child were killed. They wouldn’t “open up the gates of hell” for a woman. No, they are all bent out of shape because the Israeli’s got their main man. He’s dead, I’ll betcha.
**I think hes dead. They got him. Hes the third unidentified person**
I agree with you.
They say it like it’s a bad thing.
good, hope they get him
First thought, “Better luck next time.” However, I don’t believe in luck and hate that term. So, God bless the guidance systems and the guys that are taking aim.
It is quite possible that they killed him. We won't know for sure until tomorrow or after.
Newsflash: Hamas is trying to eliminate the Head of Every Single Israeli.
Hopefully, you’re right. I would be surprised though-I assumed that all of the Hamas big wigs were buried beneath the center of the earth under Shifa Hospital and all of those photogenic human shields.
In other news: dog bites man.
Based on the HAMAS reaction, (the launching of a missile barrage), methinks that the third body in the rubble is Deif himself. Hopefully, it is him. He deserves 1,000 deaths.
Didn’t the rocket attacks precede the IAF hit-or am I reading this wrong?
they’ll get the murdering basturd the next time, then,..
HAMAS fired 3 missiles into Israel, directed at Be’er Sheva in the South. Israel then responded with some light attacks in Gaza. “Light” meaning empty fields.
HAMAS then fired more missiles at Israel’s heartland to which the IAF hit very hard at night, trying to kill Muhammad Deif.
That's what you meant by the missile barrage.
HAMAS fired about 50 missiles into Israel. The missiles varied in terms of size, warheads, range and sophistication. I think they even fired a “FAJAR” 5 or similar. In other words, they fired many rockets and I think one fell in the Ashkelon industrial area.
