August 22 , 2014
Israeli air strikes in Gaza have killed three top Hamas commanders.
Mohammed Abu Shamlah, Mohammed Barhoum, Raed Attar and five civilians were killed after Israeli missiles repeatedly struck a house in south Gaza’s Rafah area. Dozens of people were injured in the strikes.
Israel’s defense minister Moshe Ya'alon described the strikes as a “great operational and intelligence achievement.”
Sami Abu Zuhri, a spokesperson for Hamas, said the strikes would not “weaken the resistance.”
