Sources in Gaza reported that one person had been killed and three others wounded in this latest IAF attack. IAF strikes on Shabbos killed a leader of a Salafist group, Hisham a-Saedini, as well as another Salafist terrorist, according to the Arutz Sheva report. Hisham al-Saedini was one of the founders of the Mujahideen Shura Council, said the IDF, noting that this organization is affiliated with Global Jihad and was involved in extensive terrorist activity against Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers over the years.
