Israel’s air force killed a top Palestinian terrorist in the Gaza Strip.

Tuesday’s missile strike destroyed a car carrying Mubarak Hasanat, a Popular Resistance Committees commander in Gaza. Hasanat was responsible for coordinating PRC rocket salvoes against Israel.

In the 24 hours prior to the airstrike, Palestinian terrorists fired 15 rockets across the border.
