Netanyahu: Eliminated Terrorist Was A ‘Ticking Time Bomb’


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi, and Shin Bet internal security chief Nadav Argaman made public statements Tuesday afternoon, addressing the elimination of a senior Gaza terrorist and the ensuing wave of rocket attacks on central and southern Israel.

In a televised live address, Netanyahu said Baha Abu al-Ata, the Islamic Jihad terrorist eliminated in a targeted strike in the Gaza Strip Tuesday morning, was a “ticking time bomb” who had carried out numerous attacks on Israel in the past, and continued to threaten Israeli civilians and security personnel.

“Over the last year, this arch-terrorist was behind most of the terrorism emanating from the Gaza Strip. He initiated and planned many terror attacks. He fired hundreds of rockets at the [Israeli] border towns. He was a ticking time bomb.”

  1. Look how he slaps himself on his back for a little job finally taken care of. Now he better find more empty buildings and empty fields to shoot at before Hamas destroys them themselves.

  2. Quite embarrassing that Israel who boasts “kochi v’otzem yadi – my power and my might” can’t even defeat a handful of Hamas terrorists.

  3. Netanyahu trying to mimic Trump (who eliminated the head of ISIS) and expect to get the same kudos for eliminating a terrorist which he could have done thousand times earlier.

  4. Targeted killings have been demonstrated to do wonders.
    The terrorists hate it. I don’t blame them. Nothing spoils a good day, like by getting killed.
    Hey, one minute, Israelis feel the same way too!
