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

The Israel Defense Forces and Shin Bet security agency confirm the Air Force carried out a strike in the southern Gaza Strip killing Ahmad Abu Daqqa, the Islamic Jihad’s deputy head of the terror group’s rocket array.

The IDF says Abu Daqqa was the deputy of Ali Ghali, who was killed in an Israeli strike early this morning.

The military says Abu Daqqa “took a significant part in commanding and carrying out the rocket barrages towards Israel” over the past day.

The IDF also publishes a video showing the strike in the southern Gaza town of Bani Suheila, near Khan Younis.
