ex hamasA report says the Israeli military had attempted to abduct the former commander of Hamas military wing some four years before killing him in order to swap him with then-captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

According to a Thursday report by the Israeli news website Walla, the Israeli military dispatched troops to the

Gaza Strip in 2008 to ambush Ahmed al-Ja’abari as he was on one of his routine roads.

The Israeli regime intended to capture the Hamas commander and use him as leverage to secure the release of Shalit, who was in captivity of the Palestinian resistance movement between June 2006 and October 2011.

However, the mission, which involved both the Israeli military and Shin Bet security service, failed on the designated day as Ja’abari’s car proceeded in a different direction than the expected one, the report said.

Israel assassinated Ja’abari, the commander of Izzeddin Qassam Brigades, in an airstrike in November 14, 2012 at the beginning of an eight day offensive on the blockaded Gaza Strip, which killed over 160 Palestinians and injured some 1,200 others.

An Egypt-mediated ceasefire agreement between the Tel Aviv regime and Hamas put an end to the Israeli war on Gaza on November 21, 2012.
