Israel kills Baha Abu Al-Ata, top Palestinian militant in Gaza

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, told reporters that Abu el-Atta was a "ticking time bomb, " saying he had been responsible for a number of recent rocket attacks on southern Israel and claimed that he was actively planning new attacks.

An Islamic Jihad statement confirmed the death of Al-Atta, who it said had been in the midst of "heroic jihadist action".

The army said it was restricting access to farm lands near the border with Gaza and that schools and some roads in the area would be closed Tuesday in anticipation of reprisal attacks. The militant group said the commander's wife was also killed in the airstrike and that their children were wounded.

Conricus added that the airstrike had been carried out with a warplane that destroyed only the floor of the building where Abu el-Atta was hiding in order to minimize "collateral damage".

He said Israel had no further plans to resume its assassinations of militant leaders - a practice that in the past has triggered heavy fighting.

He said that Hamas would never take an isolated decision in any of the Palestinian issues, and that any measure must be discussed with the other Palestinian factions and a collective decision be taken by all of them together.

Gaur later addressed his resolution on Twitter , explaining Trebek had simply shared with the contestants he had reentered remedy. While he's concerned about what his passing would mean for his loved ones, Trebek said he's not afraid of what lies ahead.

Air sirens sounded in central Israel, warning of possible rocket attacks from Gaza. Two other people were wounded. Al-Ikhbariya channel said al-Ajouri's son was among those killed. Syrian state media identified the building as a civilian home located near the Lebanese embassy in Mezzah, a western district of the capital that is home to Damascus University and many foreign embassies. Power had gone off in the neighborhood from the attack.

"Kahol Lavan will back up any activity that is right for Israel's security and put the safety of the people above politics".

It's a rare resumption of pinpointed targeting that threatens a new cross-border round of violence with Palestinian militants.

The strike led to "substantial" rocket fire from the Gaza Strip towards Israel and air raid sirens rang out in parts of the country, Israel's military said, but it was unclear if it resulted in casualties or damage. It was the deadliest and most destructive. Bennet has been clamouring for a more aggressive stance toward Gaza.

On Monday morning at 11 AM the IDF spokesperson tweeted that IDF aircraft attacked two terrorists belonging to a long range rocket squad of the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization in the northern Gaza Strip. The protests are creating unrest that Tehran fears would spark a backlash against Iran-backed proxy militias in those countries and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has accused the USA and its regional allies of fomenting the Iraq and Lebanon unrest.
