Israel Kills 13, Including Women & Children, in Airstrikes Targeting Militant Leaders in Gaza

Israel launched surprise airstrikes in Gaza overnight, targeting three commanders of the Islamic Jihad militant group, who were assassinated in their homes. The attacks killed a total of 13 people, including the wives and children of the men. The Israeli attack broke a ceasefire that had been reached last week after a spike in violence following the death of Palestinian prisoner Khader Adnan in Israeli custody. “As the occupying power, Israel has the obligation to protect the civilian population,” says Phyllis Bennis, author, and fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies. “Instead, we’re seeing the expansion of an apartheid regime and one which is prepared to use violence at extraordinary levels without a moment’s hesitation.”
