The Israeli military reported that Israeli aircraft attacked Islamic Jihad positions in the Gaza Strip early on Tuesday.
According to the organization, three senior commanders were killed in the operations.
According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, the airstrikes caused several fatalities and injuries. Nothing more was provided.
The homes of three senior commanders of the Iranian-backed Islamic Jihad organization were the target of the aerial bombs, according to the Israeli military.
Witnesses reported seeing an explosion that damaged a home in the southern city of Rafah and the top floor of an apartment building in Gaza City. Early morning airstrikes against militant training grounds persisted.
According to the Israeli army, the aerial bombings, known as “Operation Shield and Arrow,” were directed at Khalil Bahtini, the Islamic Jihad’s commander for the northern Gaza Strip, Tareq Izzeldeen, the organization’s go-between for its members in Gaza, and the West Bank, and Jehad Ghanam, the military council’s secretary.
It was noted that the three were in charge of a recent missile fire directed at Israel.
According to Islamic Jihad, the three were among the dead, a lesser movement than the one that controls Hamas.
