The home of a Hamas battalion commander was demolished in a Wednesday-night airstrike, Israeli forces said — as Islamic militants from the Gaza Strip fired rockets toward Tel Aviv in ongoing hostilities between both sides.
The IDF said Tayeb’s home “served as part of the terror group’s infrastructure,” the outlet reported.
The destruction came amid another round of attacks between Israel and Gaza late Wednesday night into early Thursday.
In Israel, according to the IDF, a Hamas rocket landed in a civilian neighborhood in the city of Petah Tikva.
The strike caused “injuries and significant damage,” in the city, which is located about six miles east of Tel Aviv, the IDF tweeted.
Tel Aviv, meanwhile, was targeted by at least two barrages, triggering air sirens in the densely populated city.
The death toll in the ongoing conflict rose to 67 Palestinians, including 16 children and five women, according to Gaza’s Health Ministry.
In Israel, seven people have been killed. Among them were a soldier killed by an anti-tank missile and a 6-year-old child hit in a rocket attack.
