The Israel Defense Forces says it has killed the deputy head of Hamas’s intelligence directorate, Shadi Barud, in a strike in the Gaza Strip today.
The IDF accuses Barud of planning the October 7 attacks in southern Israel with Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar.
Barud previously served as a battalion commander in the Khan Younis area and held other roles in the terror group’s intelligence directorate, and “was responsible for planning numerous terror attacks against Israeli civilians,” the IDF adds.
The IDF publishes a video showing the airstrike that killed the senior commander.
