The IDF spokesperson's unit on Wednesday confirmed that during a joint operation with general security forces an Army of Islam official, Aslam Yassin, was killed during a targeted assassination.

Yassin was a resident of Jablia in the northern Gaza Strip and was a senior member of the radical Palestinian terror group affiliated with al-Qaida and involved in the 2006 abduction of Gilad Schalit.

In recent days Yassin personally worked on carrying out a terrorist attack involving kidnapping Israelis of Sinai, the IDF statement read.
