Israel claims it has killed a Hamas official involved in smuggling weapons

The Israel Defense Forces and Israel's security agency, Shin Bet, claim they killed Hamas official Hassan Atrash on Friday in southern Gaza.

Atrash was in charge of trade, manufacturing and supply of weapons for Hamas, according to a post on X, formerly Twitter, from the IDF. 

“He was involved in smuggling weapons from various countries into the Gaza Strip, and recently also took part in smuggling weapons into the West Bank,” the military said.

Atrash was killed by a strike from a fighter jet near the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza, according to the post.
