IDF spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says a senior Hamas commander was killed in an overnight Israeli airstrike in the Gaza Strip.

“We are not stopping our attacks on the Strip,” he says, adding that dozens of Hamas members, including the deputy commander of the terror group’s rocket array, were killed in overnight strikes.

“We are increasing the attacks in the Gaza Strip in order to reduce the threats to our forces in preparation for the next phase of the war,” he says, referring to Israel’s expected ground offensive.

“We will go to the next stage under the best conditions for the IDF and in accordance with the decision of the political echelon,” Hagari adds.
