Al Arabiya reports that Israel has notified Egyptian mediators that it is seeking only a limited military operation in Gaza after killing a senior PIJ commander along with roughly a dozen other terrorists en route to carrying out sniper attacks against civilians.

Israel is hoping that Operation Breaking Dawn will be similar to Operation Black Belt from November 2019 when the IDF killed senior PIJ commander Baha Abu al-Ata, sparking a three-day military campaign during which 34 Gazans killed were killed. The IDF said the majority were PIJ and Hamas terrorists.
