Abu-Jibril Shimali, commander of Izzadin al-Qassam Brigades, was reportedly killed in clashes between Hamas and Jund Ansar Allah, an al-Qaida-inspired extremist group, during battles in Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip Friday evening. Izzadin al-Qassam Brigades is the armed group that kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit three years ago. The report by Army Radio, quoting Palestinian sources, could not be confirmed by The Jerusalem Post.
