Murder → Assasination of Sheikh Ahmed Ismail Yassin (03/22/2004)
Sheikh Ahmed Ismail Yassin was the co-founder (with Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi) and the spiritual leader of the militant Palestinian Islamist organization of Hamas, originally calling it the Palestinian Wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. In addition to being nearly blind, he was a paraplegic and had to use a wheelchair after a playground accident in his youth. He was assassinated by an Israeli helicopter gunship.
Ahmed Yassin was killed in an Israeli attack on March 22, 2004. While he was being wheeled out of an early morning prayer session, an Israeli helicopter gunship fired Hellfire missiles at Yassin and both of his bodyguards. They were killed instantly, along with nine other bystanders.
