November 2, 2023
IDF airstrike on Commander of Hamas’s anti-tank missile units
Israel killed the head of Hamas’s anti-tank missile division in an air strike in Gaza, according to the country’s defence minister.
Muhammad A’sar led the terrorist group’s anti-tank missile units which have already killed 11 Israeli soldiers since the ground operation began.
Defense Minister Yoav Gallant announced Wednesday evening that an IDF fighter jet struck the terrorist commander in the Gaza Strip.
The news of the strike comes after 11 Israeli Givati Brigade soldiers were killed when an anti-tank missile in Gaza struck their armoured personnel carrier.
Gallant added: “We have taken out most of the commanders from this division, and yesterday, we eliminated its leader.
“Our soldiers consistently report confrontations with terrorists emerging from tunnels within buildings and under schools. Gaza is a hub of terror and evil.”
He said that Israel had carried out around 10,000 strikes on Gaza City which the IDF has essentially surrounded cutting the enclave in two.
Gallant said: “We won’t stop until we reach all of them, every terrorist at every level. We are determined to win.
“The enemy has only two options – either surrender unconditionally or die. There is no third option.”

Israel has responded with thousands of airstrikes in Gaza as well as a ground operation which Tel Aviv says is just beginning. Palestinian health authorities claim at least 9,061 people – including 3,760 children – have died in Gaza.
