Dozens of rockets fired from Gaza after Israel assassinates senior Islamic Jihad leader

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that Israel does not seek to escalate tensions with the besieged Gaza Strip, just hours after the Israeli army announced that it had assassinated a senior military leader of Islamic Jihad in Gaza.

In a statement, Islamic Jihad confirmed the death of 42-year-old Bahaa Abu al-Atta, the group's commander in the northern Gaza Strip, and his wife Asmaa, 39, in an Israeli attack on their house in the east of Gaza City.

Around an hour after the killings in Gaza, dozens of missiles were launched into Israel from Gaza after Palestinian groups vowed retaliation for the killings. Israeli forces have carried out several subsequent strikes in Gaza

At least two more Palestinians, who Israel claimed was part of an Islamic Jihad rocket launching unit, were reported to have been killed, the Gaza Ministry of Health said, raising the death toll to four Palestinians killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza on Tuesday.
