Air strike; militant commander among 4 dead

The Israel air strikes kill a militant commander among four in Gaza. The Palestinian Health Ministry says Israeli airstrikes on Gaza have killed four people and wounded another 15. The Islamic Jihad militant group says a senior commander, Taiseer al-Jabari, is among those killed.

Israel launched the airstrikes on Friday after days of soaring tensions following the arrest of a senior Islamic Jihad militant in the occupied West Bank. Israel says it is targeting the group, raising fears of another all-out Gaza war.

Israel had closed roads around Gaza earlier this week and sent reinforcements to the border as it braced for a revenge attack after the arrest of the Islamic Jihad leader in the occupied West Bank on Monday.
