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

The Israeli Army has announced the death of Marwan Issa, the ‘number 3’ of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), during an airstrike carried out at the beginning of March in the Nuseirat refugee camp, in the center of the Strip from Gaza. Issa, who was also known as ‘number two’ to Mohamed Deif, head of the Ezzeldin al Qassam Brigades – the armed wing of Hamas – helped organize attacks on October 7 that left around 1,200 dead and 240 hostages.

According to reports, another senior Hamas member, Commander Ghazi Abu Tamaa, head of the combat and administrative assistance staff was also killed in the same attack. Israel launched its offensive against Gaza in response to these attacks. Since then, more than 32,300 Palestinians have been reported dead in Gaza plus over 420 due to actions by security forces and Israeli settlers in West Bank and East Jerusalem.
