GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli airstrike early Friday killed the official in charge of the media department of Islamic Jihad's military wing, along with three of his children.

The Islamic Jihad movement confirmed on Friday that Salah Ahmad Abu Hasanein, 45, nicknamed Abu Ahmad, was killed along with his sons 15-year-old Abd al-Aziz, 12-year-old Hadi and 9-year-old Abd al-Hadi.

The Israeli attack on Abu Ahmad's home in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip also injured 14 others.

The Israeli army earlier claimed the assassination of Abu Ahmad, who they described as a member of the "higher military council" of the Islamic Jihad movement.

Israel has killed more than 940 Palestinians since it began a massive assault on Gaza 18 days ago.

The vast majority of the casualties have been civilians, many of them the family members or neighbors of individuals associated with Palestinian militant groups.
