Murad Abu Murad, a top Hamas official who helped orchestrate last week’s murderous attack in Israel, was killed during an overnight airstrike, according to the Israeli Air Force.
Murad is the head of Hamas’ Air Force, the Jerusalem Post reported, citing Hebrew media.
The country also recovered the bodies of several missing citizens during a raid on Gaza, the IDF confirmed.
The remains were transported back to Israel.
On Friday, Israel dropped thousands of fliers in Gaza imploring citizens to “leave immediately” while Hamas urged residents to disregard the orders.
