Stern, Sarah N.

Washington Jewish Week;11/22/2012, Vol. 48 Issue 47, p18
The author discusses the embarkment of the Operation Pillar of Defense by the government of Israel that conducted a surgical air strike killing Palestinian Islamist organization, Hamas, leader Ahmed Jabari. He notes that such adoption of targeted assassination is followed by the U.S. as a crucial tactic to pursue those responsible for terrorism. He believes that such tactic has become necessary because 21st-century warfare is different than any warfare that has been conducted in the past.
