The Israel Defense Forces says that in an airstrike this morning, the head of Hamas’s anti-tank guided missile array in northern Gaza, Ibrahim al-Sakher, was killed.

The IDF says al-Sakher was responsible for the missile attack that killed Staff Sgt. Omer Tabib during the May 2021 war.

Tabib’s family has been updated, the army says.

Additionally, the IDF says al-Sakher “was responsible for planning and directing multiple anti-tank guided missile attacks toward Israeli territory and specifically against IDF soldiers.”
