Strike represents a blow to the armament program of Hamas's military wing, particularly to advanced weapons and drones, Shin Bet states.
 
A senior Hamas member in charge of advanced weapons development was killed in an IAF airstrike on Friday, security forces announced Sunday.

The target, Ismael Muhammad Sa'ad Akluk, 25, was in a vehicle which was targeted by the IAF, acting on information from the Shin Bet intelligence agency.

The Shin Bet said Akluk had been involved in weapons production centers and weapons research and development for several years, describing him as a key figure in Hamas's drone and rocket research program.

"This strike represents a blow to the armament program of Hamas's military wing, particularly to advanced weapons and drones, which are seen as flagship programs that received many resources," the Shin Bet stated.
