Hammering Hamas

Middle East;Dec2003, Issue 340, p28
The Israelis unleashed their systematic assassination campaign aimed at eliminating militant Palestinian leaders soon after the Intifada erupted on 28 September 2000, but they declared open season on August 19, 2003. It is clear that Hamas security apparatus has been deeply penetrated all the way to the top and that the Israelis are getting a steady stream of extremely precise information on the movements and plans of the leadership. The air strikes, particularly, are launched at extremely short notice following tip-offs by informers within Hamas.
