The Israeli intelligence service, Mossad, has a long history of using targeted killings to attack the enemies of the Jewish state. For example in the 1970s and 1980s the Mossad tracked down and killed many Palestinian terrorists like Ali Hassan Salamah involved in the planning of attacks like the Munich Olympics massacre and other terror operations. In some cases the Israeli army's elite commando units would do the killing, in others the Mossad would employ car bombs or assassins. In 1998 a botched attempt was made to kill a senior Hamas official in Amman, Jordan, for which Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu was forced to apologize to King Hussein.
