GAZA CITY: A senior militant from Islamic Jihad was among more than 15 people killed in Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip Friday, prompting the militant group to warn Israel has “started a war.”
A child was among those killed in the strikes, the enclave’s health ministry said, while Israel’s military estimated 15 combatants were killed.
The Israeli army said the strikes were part of an operation “against targets in the Palestinian Islamic Jihad” group.
Islamic Jihad said Israel had “started a war against our people.”
