IAF Kills Hamas Commander

(Jerusalem Post) Margot Dudkevitch - IDF helicopters Thursday killed Hamas military commander Yasser Taha, 30, and his aide Jihad Srour, in an air strike on a vehicle in Gaza City. Taha was considered master-bomber Muhammad Deif's right-hand man, Israeli security officials said. Taha was directly involved in the infiltration in Atzmona in March 2002, in which five students were murdered, as well as numerous other attacks. He was also actively involved in training Hamas recruits and purchasing weapons.
