Al-Ata and his wife were reportedly killed in the operation which targeted their home in the Shejaia district of Gaza City. At least three other Palestinians were also reportedly wounded in the strike. Schools in Ashkelon and other areas along the border between Israel and Gaza have been closed on Tuesday and shelters have been opened as a precaution.

Retaliatory rocket and cross-border attacks by PIJ and other militant organizations are likely in the coming hours.
