Israeli Army confirms death of Hamas’ 3rd-in-command in recent Gaza attack

The Israeli Army has confirmed the death of Marwan Issa, a senior member of Hamas, during an airstrike carried out in the Nuseirat refugee camp at the beginning of March. Issa was the ‘number two’ of Mohamed Deif, head of the Ezzeldin al Qassam Brigades – the armed wing of Hamas – and helped organize the attacks on October 7 that left around 1,200 dead and 240 hostages. His death was announced last week by White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.

Another senior Hamas member, Commander Ghazi Abu Tamaa, head of the combat and administrative assistance staff, was also killed in the same attack. This information was reported by The Times of Israel newspaper. Israel launched its offensive against Gaza in response to the October 7 attacks. Since then, more than 32,300 Palestinians have been reported dead by the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza plus more than 420 due to actions by security forces and Israeli settlers in West Bank and East Jerusalem.
