The IDF has yet to confirm or deny the reports, and Saad’s condition is currently unknown.

Israeli media sources reported that Saad is a member of Hamas’s military wing and serves as the head of the terrorist group’s operations department, effectively the no. 4 Hamas leader in Gaza.

Earlier, the IDF stated that fighter jets had struck two Hamas military infrastructures in the Gaza City area. The military noted that more details were to follow.

Later, Ismail Al-Thawabtathe, the director of the Hamas-run government media office in Gaza, told Reuters that Israeli attacks in districts of Gaza City had killed 42 people.

Al-Thawabtathe did not specify to Reuters how many of that number were terrorists and how many may have been civilians.

According to the media office director, 24 of those were killed in a strike on houses in the Shati refugee camp outside of Gaza City.

The other 18 were reportedly killed in a strike on houses in the Tuffah neighborhood of the city.

In Lebanon, an Israeli drone struck deep in the Bekaa valley. The IDF said it had eliminated a top Hamas terrorist in Lebanon after it struck a vehicle near the town of Khiara in Lebanon’s West Beqaa District, some 40 kilometers (25 miles) north of the two countries’ border, Lebanese media reported.

The IDF later published footage from the attack, saying it had targeted Ayman Ghatma. Ghatma was killed in the attack, the army said. It said he was responsible for supplying weapons to Hamas in Lebanon as well as to the al-Jama’a al-Islamiyya terror group.

The army said the drone strike was carried out over Ghatma’s involvement in promoting attacks against Israel.

It’s great, however, there are 2 ways to kill mosquitoes in the swamp. You can squish them one by one (and that’s endless) or do what has to be done, dry the swamp
