Report: PM orders killing of Hamas MPs
Advertisements [?]
In order to stop the firing of Kassam rockets from the Gaza Strip, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has ordered his security chiefs to target the Hamas political leadership, the British Sunday Times newspaper reported on Sunday.

The Times said that according to Israeli security sources, a decision to assassinate leading Hamas politicians was made by Olmert and Defense Minister Amir Peretz.

According to the report, Israel was determined to ensure the political leadership in Gaza, the West Bank and abroad would "no longer escape responsibility" for the rocket attacks.

Kassam rockets have rained down on Israel on a regular basis even after the IDF's withdrawal from Gaza, recently forcing Sderot schools to strike and a mass evacuation of youngsters from the town.
