A air-to-ground missile fired by an Israeli aircraft killed the head of Hamas’ naval commando unit in Gaza Monday afternoon.
Mohammed Shaaban and two other individuals in the vehicle were killed in the air strike, according to Israel’s Channel 2 News.
There were no reports of anyone else killed in the strike, which apparently used a low-level charge which left another vehicle alongside unscathed.
“Since (Sunday) night, Hamas has fired over 100 rockets at Israeli civilians. No nation would accept this threat, neither will we,” an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Twitter feed update read.
