Israel kills second senior Islamic Jihad commander in the Gaza Strip amid war worries

On Saturday, Israeli authorities announced the death of Khaled Mansour, who led the Iran-backed militant group’s operations, a day after a coordinated airstrike took out Tayseer Jabari, the senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad Commanding Officer of the terrorist group’s Northern Gaza Division.

Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid called Saturday’s strike “an extraordinary achievement” that was conducted as a joint operation by its military and intelligence agencies.
