Israel announced it would resume targeted killings, and hours later struck a Hamas leader in Gaza. The change in policy is one of the measures adopted by the government’s Security Cabinet early Thursday in response to Tuesday’s bus bombing in Jerusalem, which killed 20 people. The Israel Defense Forces were expected to launch a series of anti-terrorist operations throughout the West Bank and Gaza Strip over the next few days. IDF forces began conducting anti-terror operations in Nablus, Jenin, Tulkarm and Gaza on Wednesday and Thursday, leaving three Palestinians dead in Gaza and one in Tulkarm.
