The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) spokesman announced the assassination of Hamed Ahmed Abed Khudri, who was a Hamas commander responsible for transferring funds from Iran to Gaza for building rockets that are used to attack Israeli population.

This is the first time that IDF has used targeted assassinations against terrorist leaders, after many years of discontinuing it.

In a tweet IDF said:

We just targeted Hamed Ahmed Khudari, a Gazan terrorist responsible for transferring Iranian funds to Hamas & PIJ in Gaza, helping fund their rocket fire at Israelis.

Transferring Iranian money to Hamas & the PIJ doesn’t make you a businessman. It makes you a terrorist.

IDF also target during the night the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a terrorist group in Gaza, who was using a mosque in Al-Shati, a densely populated area, as a command-and-control center. Terrorists in Gaza use places of worship for military purposes. IDF targeted their command-and-control center.
