- An Israeli policy instituted in the course of the Al-Aksa intifada of systematically targeting and killing Palestinian militants who were seen as security threats or who committed or were planning to carry out a terrorist attack. The policy was confirmed by the Israeli government in January 2001, but specific details of whom and how many were targeted were not released by the Israeli government. Nevertheless, among the more prominent of these victims were Abdel Aziz Rantisi, Sheikh Ahmed Ismail Yassin, Ismail Abu Shanab, Ibrahim Makadmeh, and Raed Karmi.
