After nearly a thousand Israelis killed by Hamas, and other Palestinian, terrorist attacks, Israel has decided to wage all out war against the Palestinian organizations. This appears to include going after Hamas leaders living outside of Israeli controlled territories. Much of the Hamas leadership and administrative apparatus (especially fund raising) is done outside Israel. Many countries do not see Hamas as a terrorist organization and allow it to operate openly. Even nations (especially in Europe) that do, technically, list Hamas as a terrorist operations, tolerate Hamas operations in their territory. The new Israeli program might involve killing Hamas leaders in countries like Syria, which still hosts many terrorist organizations. Syria also hosts the Iran supported Hizbollah terrorist organization, which has been trying to help Hamas recover from Israeli attacks.
