Hamas member behind rocket production killed in overnight bombing — IDF

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces says it has killed one of the top figures in Hamas’s weapons production apparatus in an overnight airstrike.

The military and Shin Bet say that Muhsin Abu Zina was “one of the leaders of weapons production” for Hamas, and specialized in manufacturing “strategic weapons and rockets.”

It calls him the head of the terror group’s “industries and weaponry” division.

In separate overnight operations, the IDF says ground troops directed an aircraft to strike a Hamas anti-tank missile squad, and an airstrike killed several members of a squad responsible for launching rockets at Israel.
