Israel intensified its attacks on high-ranking militant commanders in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip as well as the group’s network of underground tunnels, as the onslaught entered its second week despite international calls for a halt.

The Israeli military reported that a top commander in Islamic Jihad, Gaza’s second-largest militant group, was killed in heavy aerial and artillery attacks on Monday, which Israel characterized as strikes on terrorist infrastructure and weapons storage locations. Hamas continued to rain rocket fire on civilian targets in Israel.
