Israel to resume ‘targeted assassinations’ directed against Hamaz

Mofaz: Stop Hamas talks, start killings

The Israeli Transportation Minister has called on the government to resume ‘targeted assassination’ tactic in dealing with Hamas.

Israel must “stop talking and launch a personal targeted killing policy, against the Hamas government,” Shaul Mofaz told the Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot on Sunday.

He added that Israeli officials should prepare a plan for the assassinations and bring it to the cabinet for approval. “There is not right way to deal with the issue of a Hamas government in Gaza.”

The remarks were made after Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert declared an Egyptian-brokered truce with Hamas invalidated.

Referring to the Gaza siege, the Israeli minister admitted that Israel’s policy of cutting the supply of goods, electricity and water has so far failed.

Mofaz adopted the policy of “targeted murder” of Palestinian leaders when he was the Israeli Army’s Chief of Staff during the second intifada.
