Around 4 a.m. Thursday morning in Israel, the Israel Defense Forces announced that it had eliminated Ali Ghali, commander of Islamic Jihad’s rocket launching force, as well as two other Islamic Jihad operatives in Gaza.

“Ghali was a central figure in Islamic Jihad, as well as responsible for the recent rocket barrages launched against Israel,” the IDF tweeted.

“While there have been no rocket alerts for several hours, I expect Islamic Jihad will retaliate for the targeted strike against Ali Ghali and other cadres belonging to the militant group,” Joe Truzman, a research analyst at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, tweeted.
