Armed groups say that the Israeli air strike in Gaza killed the leader of the Islamic Jihad, Hussam Abu Harbeed (Hussam Abu Harbeed).
Monday’s killings could provoke a fierce response from groups fighting alongside the Hamas movement that controls the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli military said in a statement that Hubed “after several terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians with anti-tank missiles.”
Soon after Harbeed was killed, Isahed Jihad stated that it had fired rockets at the coastal city of Ashdod in Israel.
Medical staff said that after a night of Israeli airstrikes, at least three Palestinians were also killed by an Israeli airstrike on a car in Gaza City on Monday.
According to the Israeli military, fighters in Gaza fired about 60 rockets into Israeli cities overnight, down from 120 and 200 in the previous two nights.
Hamas said its attack was retaliation for Israel’s “continuous aggression against civilians” and called civilian casualties “premeditated killings”.
Since the most recent violence a week ago, at least 200 Palestinians, including 58 children, have been killed in the Gaza Strip.
More than 1,300 Palestinians were also injured.
