The Israel Defense Forces says it has killed a senior Hamas commander responsible for the terror group’s anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) operations in central Gaza.

In a joint statement with the Shin Bet security agency, the IDF says Ibrahim Abu-Maghsib was the head of Hamas’s ATGM array in the so-called central camps brigade.

“As part of his position, he directed and carried out numerous anti-tank missile launches directed at Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers,” the statement says.

The IDF publishes a video showing the strike.

Separately, the IDF says Navy forces struck Hamas ATGM launch positions in the Gaza Strip today.
