An IDF spokesman announced that Abdallah Kharti, a Popular Resistance Committee terrorist, was killed earlier this morning in an attack by an IAF aircraft in the center of the Gaza Strip.
Abdallah Kharti, born in 1985, was a key Popular Resistance Committees operative, affiliated with the global Jihad. Kharti was involved in numerous incidents of rocket fire towards Israel. The IDF operated in order to eliminate an imminent threat to the lives of Israeli civilians.
Since the beginning of 2014, 33 rockets were launched from Gaza at Israeli civilian targets.
Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman stated: “Precision munitions combined with advanced intelligence enables us to strike terrorists like Kharti while they attempt to use Hamas’s Gaza as a haven for their hostilities. Gaza terrorists will not be immune to launch these cross border attacks at Israeli civilians.”
