The terror group continued to fire numerous rockets into Israel on Saturday, ultimately killing another Israeli civilian; The Israeli Air Force (IAF) targeted the home of Yahya Sinwar.
Following the killing of another Israeli civilian on Saturday, the IAF sought out the home of the leader of Hamas, Yahya Sinwar, overnight into Sunday. The victim of a barrage of dozens of rockets on Saturday was a man in the central Israeli city of Ramat Gan. The terrorist leader’s brother, Muhammed, apparently resides at the same location.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement that the terror duo “serves as significant terror infrastructure.” Israel’s military also reportedly targeted many homes belonging to Hamas leadership. Additionally, as is custom during an Israeli airstrike, the IAF hit several weapon storage locations.
According to a report by The Jerusalem Post, IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Hidai Zilberman stated, “We are in the middle of an operation. If Hamas and PIJ (Palestinian Islamic Jihad) think they can hide behind the media, their buildings are not something they can hide behind.”
His comments came amid the continued strikes on several Hamas compounds in the Gaza Strip. As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has, he also added that fighting is expected for at least a few more days.
