The house of one of the commanders of the Al-Quds Brigades, the military arm of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, was hit by IAF airstrikes in the southern Gaza Strip's Rafah area, according to Palestinian reports. 
Sources say the house belongs to the Abu Hadaid family.
The IDF struck several PIJ targets in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday morning, killing two Palestinians, identified as 38-year-old Khaled Moawad Faraj, a field commander with the terror group, and 32-year-old Alaa Ashtyawu.
PIJ confirmed that Faraj, the group's central brigade commander, was killed, and warned of retaliation. Gaza’s Health Ministry said that the number of Palestinian casualties since Tuesday morning was 16. The IDF said that the majority were PIJ operatives.
Later in the morning, another three terrorists were killed following an IAF airstrike while attempting to launch rockets into Israel, Palestinian media outlets reported on Wednesday.
Wednesday's rocket fire came after six hours of relative calm. Before that, some 220 rockets had been fired toward southern and central Israel. The rockets were retaliation for the assassination of PIJ commander Bahaa Abu al-Ata.
