The Israeli Air Force targeted two terror operatives in Gaza earlier today, the Israel Defense Forces said in an email to reporters.

The targets were, “Tala’at Halil Muhammad Jarbi (b. 1989), a Global Jihad operative from Rafah, and Abdullah Muhammad Hassan Maqawai (b. 1988), a member of the Ashora Council of the Martyrs of Jerusalem, a Gaza-based Global Jihad affiliate,” according to the release.

A medic in Gaza told AFP that one person was killed and another severely injured in the operation.

The IDF says that the targets were responsible for extensive terror activity, and were in the process of planning another attack against Israel.

The IDF wrote: “For many years Tala’at was involved in extensive terrorist activity, targeting Israeli civilian and security forces, including rocket firing, weapon manufacturing, and other terrorist activities in the Gaza Strip. He was a senior operative involved in the planning and execution of an attack along the security fence on 18.6.12, during which an Israeli civilian was killed. He had also been planning an complex attack intended to take place along the Sinai border.”

Israeli Daily Yediot Ahronot reports that a spokesperson for the Hamas-run Gaza government’s health ministry claimed that a total of ten people were injured, and that those targeted were motorcyclists in the southern Gaza area.

    Nearly two years later and the extermination of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Extermination camp continues unabated. More than 2 million people confined within the worlds largest ever extermination camp and awaiting slaughter. So inhuman, so immoral, so so evil.

    It is said “a picture speaks a thousand words” and this is so in the picture of the terrorist you included in your article. Quite clearly, the terrorist pictured, is evil personified.

    Military actions are always a difficult thing, to take a life…but, I support Israel, and if this guy killed even ONE PERSON IN ISRAEL…and was planning other things within Israel, or elsewhere…this move on the part of the IDF, would be a positive move…and a strategic effort to maintain peace within Israel.

    As I see it, Golda Meir is correct, “When peace comes, we will perhaps in time be able to forgive the Arabs for killing our sons. But it will be harder for us to forgive them for having forced us to kill their sons.”

    No one likes being forced to have to kill…but, at least Israel has the courage to kill killers.

    Maybe Israel will stop being pressured by the whole world…and move with this great courage, and not allow all the talk to end in yet, another holocaust in the Mid-East, because no one would take courage, and strike a killer in Iran, even when NO ONE IN THE WORLD SUPPORTS YOUR ACTS OF COURAGE, for the sake of your children and your children’s children.

    Israel is a new NATION. Those who would move against your safety, fight against God. I wish I could be the Ambassador to Israel. Then, like Golda Meir, you would have another man, on your side!
