Is­rael kills Ji­had boss

Mercury (Hobart) - - WORLD -

IS­RAEL has killed a top com­man­der from the Ira­ni­an­backed Pales­tinian mil­i­tant group Is­lamic Ji­had in the Gaza Strip.

The rare strike, which killed Is­lamic Ji­had’s Baha Abu AlAtta in Gaza, came as Syr­ian me­dia said a sep­a­rate mis­sile hit the home of an Is­lamic Ji­had of­fi­cial in Da­m­as­cus, killing two peo­ple in­clud­ing one of his sons. Syria said Is­rael car­ried out the Da­m­as­cus strike, while Is­rael did not com­ment on the in­ci­dent.
