Israel targets another Hamas commander as tension rises with rockets fired from Sinai

Another Hamas commander, this time Alaa al-Danaf, has been targeted by the IDF. An explosion early this morning destroyed his house and injured 40 people, mostly women and children.

Rockets were fired towards the Israeli resort at Eliat on the Sinai peninsula. One hit the resort, three landed in the sea and one hit the Jordanian town of Aqaba where unfortunately one person was killed.

Three Palestinians have been killed over the past few days in IDF attacks. No one has been injured or killed on the Israeli side.
