A curious woman looks through a window at the bodies of four men inside the Bethlehem peace centre during a funeral. The four men were Islamic Jihad leader Mohammad Shahada, Islamic Jihad militants Issa Marzouq and Imad Al-Kamel, and Al-Aqsa Brigades militant Ahmad Al-Balboul. They were Killed by small arms fire the previous evening from undercover Israeli Special Forces as they waited in a car outside a bakery in Bethlehem. Such killings occur as part of Israel’s policy of ‘focused foiling’ otherwise known as targeted killing: The assassination of individuals considered to be engaged in activity that threatens the security of the Israeli state. 2008.
