(SOURCE)  A Palestinian thought by Israel to be heavily involved in the launching of rockets onto Israeli townships in the western Negev was critically injured early Sunday as a result of an IAF targeted attack in the central Gaza Strip, the army confirmed.

Israeli military sources said Abdallah Kharti, a member of the Popular Resistance Committees, took an active role in the planning and execution of rocket attacks.

“The IDF acted to remove an immediate threat on the citizens of the State of Israel,” the army said in a statement.”

“Precision munitions combined with advanced intelligence enable us to strike terrorists like Kharti while they attempt to use Hamas’s Gaza as a haven for their hostilities,” an IDF spokesperson said. “Gaza terrorists will not be immune to launch these cross border attacks at Israeli civilians.”

Addressing Sunday’s missile strike in Gaza, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said the terrorist hit by the IDF had been involved in attacks and rocket fire against Israel, including against the city of Eilat.

“We will not tolerate the disruption of the lives of our citizens, and we will act decisively against anyone who harms or tries to harm the state of Israel,” Ya’alon said.

“We will pursue with determination every terrorist operative who tries to harm the security of Israeli citizens, and we’ll cause him to pay a very heavy price. We see Hamas as being responsible for what occurs in the Gaza Strip, and if it does not know how to enforce its authority in its territory, we will know how to exact a price from it too,” Ya’alon said.
