The Israel Defence Forces confirmed on Wednesday morning that a Hamas terrorist, involved in smuggling weapons and ammunition, was killed in an overnight airstrike. For several years, Wassam Abu Eshaq had been smuggling arms into Gaza from Egypt’s Sinai through the Rafah border crossing or underground tunnels. Additionally, a rocket launch site in the Rafah area was also targeted, where rockets ready for firing were located.

Over the last day, Israeli aircraft struck numerous Hamas facilities, tunnel shafts, and terror squads. The Air Force also attacked dozens of terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip, including military buildings, terrorist squads, and underground shafts.

At least 1,200 people were killed, and 252 Israelis and foreigners were taken hostage during Hamas’s attacks on Israeli communities near the Gaza border on October 7. Of the 116 remaining hostages, more than 30 are believed to be dead.
