Israel Hit by Rockets After Airstrike Kills Islamic Leader

Approximately 70 rockets were fired at Israel Tuesday morning after the elimination of Baha Abu al-Ata, a senior Islamic Jihad terrorist in a nighttime attack by Israel. There were no casualties but 3 people were lightly injured, two suffering from shock and a third while he was running to a bomb shelter.

Al-Ata, who led Islamic Jihad’s Al Quds Brigades’ Gaza branch, and his wife were both killed in the attack.

Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, which protects heavily populated civilian centers, fired approximately 20 missiles at incoming rockets. One rocket exploded on a busy road near Ashdod, narrowly missing a passing car

In response to the rocket attacks, Israeli forces struck terrorist targets in the northern Gaza Strip, including Hamas’s internal security headquarters in Gaza City.

According to Arab media outlets, the Israeli retaliatory attacks targeted Hamas’ internal security headquarters in Gaza City.

An IDF spokesperson said that Israeli aircraft had opened fire on a group of Islamic Jihad terrorists preparing to fire a rocket. Two terrorists were reported killed in the strike.

In a separate airstrike targeting a building in Damascus, two people were killed, including the son of another Islamic Jihad senior official. However, Islamic Jihad reported that the target of the attack, Akram al-Ajouri, survived the attack.
