IDF killed Hamas commander overnight, spokesman says [View all]

From CNN's Chloe Liu

An Israel Defense Forces spokesperson told CNN that it had killed another Hamas commander, Billal al-Qedra, who allegedly led the attacks on the Nirim kibbutz near the Israeli border.

"This just goes to exemplify that we have the intelligence in order to take out Hamas' leadership ... all the way down to the terrorists that breached, penetrated and butchered our babies in their bedrooms. So, the operation is ongoing," Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said.

The Israeli Air Force also put out a statement on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Sunday about the commander's death, claiming IDF and Israel Securities Authority (ISA) "killed the Nukhba commander of the forces in southern Khan Yunis, who was responsible for the Kibbutz Nirim massacre."

Hamas has not yet commented.
