US Pursues Assassination Strategy, Says Mofaz

Former Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz says the United States has adopted Tel Aviv’s policy of targeted assassinations in the killing of al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden.

Mofaz said in an interview with Israeli radio on Tuesday that Washington’s decision to kill bin Laden rather than try him in a court of law justified the former policy that Tel Aviv implemented against Palestinians that included killing Hamas and other senior Palestinian officials.

He also called on Tel Aviv to increase targeted killings of Palestinian leaders, claiming that the strategy has been successful in curtailing their activities.

Mofaz currently heads the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

The death of bin Laden was announced by US President Barack Obama late Sunday.

The US president said that American forces killed the mastermind behind the September 11, 2001 attacks in a firefight in Pakistan’s Abbottabad.
