Gaza militant group says top fighter killed
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad says an Israeli strike on a Gaza media center has killed one of its top militant leaders.
Today’s strike in downtown Gaza City was part of a widening 6-day-old offensive meant to quell Hamas rocket fire.
It’s the second strike on the building in two days. The Hamas TV station, Al Aqsa, is located on the top floor.
Islamic Jihad has sent a text message to reporters saying that Ramez Harb was killed in the strike today. Harb is a leading figure in their militant wing, the Al Quds Brigades.
