The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has launched more than 600 surgical strikes against Palestinian terrorists in Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) this week in response to the terrorists firing well over a thousand rockets into Israel.

The IDF’s most recent actions against the terrorists include destroying a Hamas terror tunnel, security and intelligence buildings, eliminating numerous top officers in the terrorist organizations, and killing countless numbers of terrorist soldiers.

The strikes from the IDF come after the Palestinian terrorists have fired more than 1,500 rockets into Israel, killing at least seven people and wounding hundreds.

Top Israeli defense officials met on Wednesday night and approved a plan to “intensify military attacks” on the terrorist attacks, which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said earlier in the day was going to happen.

“The campaign is still far from over,” a cabinet member told Israel’s Ynetnews. “Whatever we don’t do now, we will have to do in six months or a year from now.”

“This will not end in the next few days,” said a cabinet member. “Israel will not stop and has no interest in stopping. It is all moving in the right direction. We will act until they admit that opening fire was a mistake, just as Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah did after the Second Lebanon War in 2006.”

The official said that Israel has still not finished with its surgical airstrikes against the terrorists, but, once it has, if they do not surrender, Israel will be launching a ground offensive to eliminate the remaining threats. IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Hidai Zilberman said all options were on the table and that plans were being drawn up by the IDF for a variety of options.

“The army will continue to attack to bring a total, long-term quiet,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said on Wednesday. “Only when we reach that goal will we be able to speak about a truce.”

The IDF taunted Hamas early on Wednesday morning after Israel’s Air Force terminated numerous Hamas intelligence officials. “Our fighter jets, with the ISA, neutralized key figures of Hamas’ intelligence: Hassan Kaogi, head of the Hamas military intelligence security department & his deputy Wail Issa, head of the military intelligence counterespionage department,” they wrote. “Looks like our intel was better.”

The IDF highlighted on social media other top Hamas terrorists on Tuesday that it terminated on the battlefield.

“We just killed the commander of the Hamas anti-tank missile unit, Iyad Fathi Faik Sharir,” the IDF wrote. “He was in charge of carrying out anti-tank missile attacks on Israel. Our aircraft are currently striking additional terror targets in Gaza.”

“This is the moment that the IDF & Israel Security Agency carried out a targeted strike against Islamic Jihad commander, Samah Abed al-Mamluk & other senior members of his unit,” the IDF added. “They were among those responsible for hundreds of rockets fired at Israelis.”
