Israel attacks Palestinian leader's HQ

Yahoo! News reported Israeli aircraft sent missiles tearing through the office of Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh on Sunday in an unmistakable message to his ruling Hamas group to free an Israeli soldier.

This should now get their attention: if they don't return the kidnapped soldier, Israel will target Hamas leaders.
Defense Minister Amir Peretz told a Cabinet meeting that Israel would go after "higher-caliber targets" in the future — a reference to senior Hamas officials inside and outside the Palestinian territories, a high-ranking political official said.
