(IsraelNN.com) A government source released a statement that tonight’s surgical strike in Gaza targeting Hamas leader Rantisi was not a retaliatory action for today’s Gaza suicide bombing attack. The unnamed source quoted by Galei Tzahal Radio explained that this was a first opportunity to strike out at him and the government will continue targeting terrorist leaders who seek to kill innocent Israelis. The report added that whoever replaces Rantisi will be targeted for elimination as well.
