The Israel Air Force killed multiple senior PIJ commanders since the start of Operation Breaking Dawn on Friday.
Among those eliminated was Taysir al-Jaba’ri, the PIJ commander for northern Gaza who was killed Friday. Al-Jaba’ri succeeded Baha Abu al-Ata, who was killed in 2019 by Israel in a targeted assassination.
Senior PIJ combat commander Bilal Nimr Abu Amsha was also targeted and killed on Friday by Israeli warplanes as he drove a vehicle near the Palestine Tower in Gaza City.
