IDF: 3 Hamas company commanders killed in overnight strikes

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

In overnight airstrikes in the Gaza Strip, fighter jets struck and killed three Hamas company commanders, the Israel Defense Forces says.

The IDF says the strikes were carried out following intelligence information on their whereabouts provided by the Shin Bet and Military Intelligence Directorate.

Separately, the IDF says troops of the Nahal Brigade identified a group of Hamas operatives heading into a building near them in the Gaza Strip, and called in an airstrike.

The building was also being used as a weapons depot, and was destroyed in the strike, the IDF says.
