The IDF earlier said that it was investigating Palestinian media reports that dozens of Gazan civilians were killed and wounded in the strike on a Hamas compound in the city’s northwestern Tel Sultan section.

The targets of the strike were named as Yassin Rabia, the head of Hamas’s Judea and Samaria headquarters, and Khaled Nagar, a senior official in the terrorist group’s Judea and Samaria wing.

The IDF spokesperson said earlier that the strike was carried out in accordance with international law, was based on intelligence and executed using precision weaponry. However, the spokesperson continued, “The claim is known that as a result of the attack and a fire that broke out in the area, a number of non-involved people were injured. The incident is under investigation.”

Rabia and Nagar carried out terrorist attacks in the early 2000s in Judea and Samaria that killed and wounded Israeli civilians and soldiers, the military said. They also transferred funds for terrorist activities in Judea and Samaria and planned and directed attacks there.

Enough with this nonsense about innocent Palestinian civilians. They are all a bunch of vicious animals and should all be finished with one or two bombs

Too Hamas and Arabs the fact that so-called civilians where killed (even non intentionally) is considered a success, although it’s their own children,
That’s just tells what kind of enemy the Israelis are fighting

According to world opinion jewish civilians don’t count. Only Palestinian lives matter. But does anyone see similar occurrences? when the government first started up with chareidi enlistment there was that accident when Israel by mistake killed humanitarian workers from other countries. Now last week they started up again and now this. Can’t anyone speak to Netanyahu and show him what he should be able to see himself ? Where is his frum daughter?
