Reports in Gaza: Right-Hand Man of Hamas 'Engineer' Eliminated
Palestinian Arab sources reported on Saturday night, December 30, that senior Hamas terrorist Abdel Fattah Ma’ali was eliminated in an air strike in the Gaza Strip.
Ma’ali was the right-hand man of Yahya Ayyash, who was nicknamed “The Engineer” and who was eliminated by Israel in 1996 using an explosive-laden cellular phone. Ma’ali assisted Ayyash in carrying out his attack in 1992.
Palestinian Arab media reported that Ma’ali managed to flee the IDF for years and had moved between Syria, Yemen, and Sudan - until he settled in Gaza in 2006 and gained a senior position in Hamas.
IDF troops have also eliminated Adil Mismah, the Nukhba Company Commander of Deir al-Balah. Mismah commanded in the field Nukhba terrorists who carried out the brutal attack on Kibbutz Kissufim during Hamas’ October 7 invasion and massacre in southern Israel.
He also directed Hamas terrorists to other communities in the area near the Gaza Strip, including Kibbutz Be’eri and Kibbutz Nirim. Later, he led combat against IDF troops in Gaza. (INN / VFI News)
