rockets fired at central Israel

Nov 12, 2019
By 9am, the IDF said, 50 rockets had been fired from Gaza, of which the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted approximately 20.

All educational institutions were to remain closed Tuesday in the south and center of Israel, and people in non-essential jobs were told to remain at home.

This is the first incident of targeted killing by Israel since the end of the 2014 Gaza conflict, Operation Protective Edge.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the Islamic Jihad commander was poised to launch imminent attacks against Israel.

Blue and White leader Benny Gantz said in a tweet Tuesday morning that he supported the decision to target Abu al-Atta and that Israel's security transcended politics.

"The battle against terrorism requires difficult decisions," the former IDF chief said. "Blue and White places every proper action taken for the safety of Israel above politics. Every terrorist who endangers our security knows he is marked for death."

The IDF released a statement confirming the attack was a coordinated effort by the military and the Shin Bet security service.
