Reports and analysis: Israeli air strike kills Hamas military chief

The Palestinian Islamist group, Hamas, says the head of its military wing, Ahmed Said Khalil al-Jabari, has been killed in an Israeli air strike.

Israel's Shin Bet security service said Jabari was responsible for "all terrorist activities against Israel from Gaza" in the last decade.

Jabari is the most senior Hamas official to be killed in Gaza since an Israeli offensive four years ago.
