Israeli Troops Kill Hamas Commander

From Forbes 

Israeli troops fatally shot a Hamas commander during a gun battle in Gaza City early Tuesday, the Islamic group said in a statement.

The army moved on the home of Wael Hassanin, 26, a top commander in Gaza’s Zeitoun neighborhood, setting off a firefight with him and other Hamas gunmen, witnesses said.

Elsewhere in Gaza City, two Hamas militants were killed in an Israeli airstrike after nightfall Monday, Hamas officials said. The Israeli military said it targeted a car carrying “terrorist activists.” Hamas threatened revenge.

Israel has been carrying out a military offensive in the Gaza Strip since Hamas-linked militants captured an Israeli soldier in a cross-border raid in June. Palestinian militants continue to fire homemade rockets into southern Israel, launching at least nine rockets Monday. No injuries were reported.

Something could be about to hit the proverbial fan in Gaza soon…
