Top fighter martyred as Israel bombs Gaza

In a statement on Sunday, Islamic Jihad confirmed that Khaled Mansour, its commander in the south of the Gaza Strip, had been martyred in an Israeli raid on Saturday.

Mansour is the second high-ranking member of Islamic Jihad to be killed since the regime in Tel Aviv began attacking Gaza on Friday, when it assassinated the group’s commander in the north, Taysir al-Jabari.

The Israeli regime has warned that its campaign against Islamic Jihad could last a week, and its attacks on Gaza have destroyed apartment buildings and struck refugee camps.

The violence has raised fears of another war on Gaza by the Israeli regime, just 15 months after a month-long conflict that killed more than 260 people.
