Hamas deputy military commander, was confirmed to have been killed in an Israeli strike

Hamas deputy military commander Marwan Issa was killed in an Israeli strike this month, Israel’s military spokesperson said, confirming reports from earlier in the month.

“We have checked all the intelligence,” Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said in a televised statement. “Marwan Issa was eliminated in the strike we carried out around two weeks ago,” he said.

There was no immediate comment from Hamas.

Isa was at the top of Israel’s most-wanted list together with Mohammed Deif, the head of Hamas’ military wing, the Izz el-Deen al-Qassam Brigades, and Hamas’ leader in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar, who are believed to have masterminded the group’s October 7 attack on southern Israel that triggered the Gaza war.
