An IDF strike in Gaza on Saturday night targeted senior Hamas operative Ahmed Hassan Mabhouh, 29, who was an engineering and explosives officer in Hamas's Jabalia battalion. Mabhouh was killed in the strike.

He was the nephew of senior Hamas military commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, who, according to foreign press reports, was assassinated by Israel in Dubai in 2010 for his role in importing Iranian arms to the Gaza Strip. 


Ahmed Mabhouh, a resident of Jabalia, planted underground rocket launchers, and planted explosives to assist in ambushes of the IDF, the Shin Bet said.
