Terror group threatens to kill IDF Generals
Islamic Jihad releases video showing senior officers observed from the scope of a sniper rifle.
The Islamic Jihad published a video on Thursday showing senior IDF officers in the gunsights of a sniper rifle.
In the clip, which was disseminated by the Lebanese Al Mayadeen news, Major General Yoav Mordechai can be seen touring the Gaza border fence while a sniper follows his every move.
“You kill our people in cold blood and think that you are protected, at a time when your senior commanders are within sniping range,” read the Hebrew caption.
The Hamas terror organization released a similar video in 2014 that showed then-IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz under surveillance from short range. Hamas claimed in the video that it had the capabilities to assassinate high-level IDF officers and claimed that it was ready for “any possible aggression”.
