Mohammed Deif: elusive Hamas military chief defying Israel

Hamas’s top military commander Mohammed Deif, who has survived assassination attempts and defied the Middle East’s most powerful forces, is proving a redoubtable foe for Israel in its latest incursion in Gaza. As Israel presses its deadly offensive aimed at halting militant rocket fire and eliminating Hamas’s tunnel network, Deif has warned there will be no truce in the Palestinian enclave until Israel ends its eight-year blockade. Born in the Khan Yunis refugee camp in southern Gaza in 1965, Deif has been involved in Hamas’s operations for more than 20 years, plotting suicide bombings inside Israel, kidnapping soldiers, firing rockets and helping plan the tunnels used to launch attacks.

Israel, Palestinians locked in vicious circle of Gaza wars

By Mark Heinrich LONDON (Reuters) – When Israel ended its 38-year occupation of the Gaza Strip by withdrawing settlers in 2005, then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon hailed it as a “disengagement” from conflict with Palestinians in the densely populated coastal enclave. Israel kept expanding settlements in the West Bank where the Palestinians also seek a state. Hardline Islamists seized control of Gaza in 2007 and periodic U.S. efforts to broker a permanent peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority under secular President Mahmoud Abbas have proved fruitless. Israel sealed Gaza in an economically choking blockade and the territory’s ruling Hamas movement and other militant factions fired rockets with increasing frequency and range, though not accuracy, into the Jewish state.
