A Hamas official killed in a Beirut strike had been on Israel’s hit list for years

January 14, 2024

Saleh Arouri, the deputy political head of Hamas and a founder of the group’s military wing, had been in Israel’s sights for years before he was killed in a drone strike in a southern suburb of Beirut on Tuesday. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had threatened to kill him even before Hamas carried out its deadly surprise attack on Israel on Oct. 7, sparking the ongoing brutal war in Gaza. Israel had accused Arouri, 57, of masterminding attacks against it in the West Bank, where he was the group’s top commander.
