Palestine: Rocket kills man in Israel as strikes target Gaza militant commanders

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“The Israeli military has killed two Palestinian Islamic Jihad commanders in air strikes in Gaza during a third day of fighting with militants there. A pre-dawn attack on an apartment in Khan Younis killed the head of PIJ’s rocket-launching force and two others, who the military said were militants. In the afternoon, his deputy was killed in a strike in a nearby town. Later, one man was killed when a rocket fired from Gaza hit a building in the central Israeli city of Rehovot. It was the first fatality in Israel since it began an operation against PIJ on Tuesday morning with a series of air strikes that killed another three of the group’s commanders.” (05/11/23)
