Hamas commander killed in Gaza, say Palestinian officials


[11/11/2018 2:58:12 PM]

AMMONNEWS - Israeli security forces killed a commander from Hamas faction in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, Palestinian officials said.

They said a group of Hamas members were fired at from a passing car. Local witnesses also said that Israeli planes fired over 20 missiles into open areas where the incident took place.

The Israeli military said in a brief statement that: “During IDF (Israel Defense Forces) operational activity in the Gaza Strip, an exchange of fire evolved.”

On Friday, a Palestinian was killed by Israeli fire Friday during clashes along the Gaza-Israel border, the health ministry in the Hamas-ruled coastal enclave said.

The border between the blockaded Gaza Strip and Israel has been rocked by deadly violence since March 30 when major protests backed by Hamas and clashes broke out along the frontier.

But for the last two weeks, clashes along the border were lower in intensity than in previous weeks, amid talk of a truce deal between Hamas and Israel.
