IDF says it killed several members of Hamas’s military leadership in Gaza strikes

Judah Ari Gross is The Times of Israel's religions and Diaspora affairs correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces says it has killed several members of Hamas’s military leadership, its General Staff Forum, in a series of strikes in Gaza City and Khan Younis.

The military says this was carried out in a joint operation with the Shin Bet security service.

The IDF says the number of top commanders killed and their names will be released shortly, but that they represent “a central part of the ‘General Staff Forum’ and are considered close to the head of the Hamas terror group’s military wing, Muhammad Deif.”
