Palestinian Islamic Jihad identifies 12 members of its military wing killed in fighting with Israel, including two of the terror group’s top commanders in Gaza.
PIJ’s Al-Quds Brigades releases a graphic with photos of the 12 fighters, among them Tayseer Jabari and Khaled Mansour, the respective leaders of Islamic Jihad’s northern and southern brigades in Gaza. The former was killed in an Israeli strike Friday that kicked off the conflict, while the latter was targeted on Saturday night.
Hamas, the terror group that controls Gaza, said two members of its military wing were killed in the fighting between Israel and Islamic Jihad, while the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine said one of its fighters was killed.
The three-day conflict ended last night with a ceasefire that has held into today.
