Israel At War? IDF Eliminates Senior Islamic Jihad Terrorist ... 2 Terrorists Eliminated in Damascus! Rocket barrage on central and southern Israel

In a joint operation by the IDF and the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), a building in the Gaza Strip, in which the Palestinian Islamic Jihad senior leader Baha Abu Al Ata stayed in, was attacked overnight .

The operation was authorized by the Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, Binyamin Netanyahu.

Following the operation, Red Color sirens were sounded throughout the Gaza envelope.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said Abu Al Ata was responsible for most of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s activity in the Gaza Strip and was a “ticking bomb”. Abu Al Ata led and personally participated in terror attacks and in attempts to harm Israeli civilians and IDF troops through rocket fire, sniper fire, drone launching and more.

Baha Abu Al Ata is responsible for most of the terror attacks in the last year from the Gaza Strip, the battle days which occurred around Israeli Memorial Day, rocket fire towards a music festival in the city of Sderot on the 25th of August, and lastly the rocket fire towards the city of Sderot on Friday, November 1st 2019.

Abu Al Ata was preparing to commit immediate terror attacks in various ways towards Israeli civilians and IDF troops during the recent few days, the IDF said. Al Ata trained terror squads for infiltration and sniper attacks, drone launching and rocket fire to different distances.

The thwarting operation, conducted in cooperation between the IDF and the ISA, based on accurate intelligence and advanced operational capabilities, was a direct act to remove an imminent threat.

The IDF has deployed troops and is prepared for a wide range of offensive and defensive scenarios.

Following the air strike on the terrorist’s home, the Home Front Command announced that classes in the Gaza envelope have been cancelled on Tuesday morning.

Following an assessment of the situation, the IDF decided to block areas and roads adjacent to the Gaza border fence.
In addition, Israel Railways announced that train service would be temporarily suspended between Ashkelon and Be’er Sheva.

In Syria 
Two people were killed and six injured in an apparent airstrike on Damascus Tuesday morning, Syrian government-run media outlet SANA reported.

The Syrian government claimed that a building in Damascus, next to the Lebanese embassy, was hit in an airstrike Tuesday morning, adding that the Syrian air defense network had opened fire on a hostile target over southern Damascus.

The bombing, which occurred roughly an hour after Israel carried out a targeted strike in the Gaza Strip, killing senior Islamic Jihad terrorist Baha Abu al-Ata, struck a building where another senior Islamic Jihad terrorist was hiding.
According to Islamic Jihad, Akram al-Ajouri survived the attack, while his son and one of his bodyguards were killed.
In addition, six people were reported injured in the strike.
Israel has not responded to the reports on the airstrike in Damascus.
