By Micah HalpernI've Been thinking:
The Israeli Air Force stuck and hit Abdullah Harti this morning in Gaza.
Harti was riding a motorcycle and the missile that hit him was probably shot from an unmanned drone.
According to IDF and Shin Bet sources, Harti was a major leader in Global Jihad and is the person responsible for the increased rocket fire from Gaza into Israel these past few weeks.
Sources also say that Harti was instrumental in the deadly August 18, 2011 terror attack near Eilat. The attack killed six people and injured another twenty five. It was perpetrated by twelve terrorists who divided into four groups. The terrorists came from Egypt and then returned there.
Until his death this morning, Abdullah Harti was still a major force sending weapons and terrorists into the Sinai desert.
This type of targeted strike by Israel is a move towards man-on-man defense. As opposed to targeting weapons launchers, weapons labs and weapons depots the Israelis are focused on targeting the leaders responsible for the weapons, attacks and acts of terror.
Israel employed this style of targeting several years ago and it proved to be a very effective defensive tool.
