Sheikh Ahmed Yassin was the spiritual leader of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas . Yassin founded Hamas in 1987, originally calling it the Palestinian Wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. As well as being nearly blind, he is a paraplegic and has been confined to a wheelchair since an accident in his youth.
September_6, 2003, an Israeli Air Force F-16 dropped a quarter-ton bomb on a building in Gaza City , the Gaza Strip. Yassin was in the building at the time and was lightly wounded by the assassination attempt. Israeli officials would later confirm that Yassin was a target of the attack. Yassin was treated for injuries sustained in the attack at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. Following the assassination attempt, Yassin told reporters that "Days will prove that the assassination policy will not finish the Hamas. Hamas leaders wish to be martyrs and are not scared of death. Jihad will continue and the resistance will continue until we have victory, or we will be martyrs."
Sheikh Ahmed Yassin was murdered by Israel in March 2004
