More than 200 Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists have been killed by the IDF since the start of the ground offensive last Thursday.

In recent days, the Shin Bet and the IDF targeted a series of Islamic Jihad field commanders, described by security forces as prominent figures who stood behind many attacks on the army and rocket fire on Israeli civilians.

Islamic Jihad commanders killed in recent days include Akram Salah Muhammad Sha'ar, a senior Islamic member in the Khan Younis area, Muhammad Awad Ali Ziada, from Jabalia, who commanded a battalion in northern Gaza, Sa'aban Khaled Sa'aban Dahduah, from Gaza City, who commanded a battalion in his region, and Said Muhammad Nasser Abu Muamar, of Rafah, who also commanded an Islamic Jihad battalion in his area.
