Former IDF chief of staff: Target Hamas leaders

Former IDF chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Amnon Lipkin-Shahak said Thursday that the army should have targeted Hamas leaders long ago in retaliation for the rocket attacks on southern Israel. "I think what they have avoided doing in recent months, hitting Hamas headquarters and Hamas leaders, it seems they are beginning to do now. I believe it would have been the correct course of action long ago," he told Army Radio.
