The Israel Defense Forces struck and killed a senior leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip, officials say.
Khaled Mansour was killed in an Israeli airstrike in the city of Rafah.
He is the southern Gaza equivalent of Tayseer Jabari, the terror group’s commander in northern Gaza, who was killed in an Israeli airstrike yesterday.
Mansour also sought to commit an anti-tank guided missile attack on the Israeli border, and he is responsible for many rocket attacks on Israel, according to officials.
