Hamas’s ‘Number Two’ Marwan Issa Killed in Israeli Airstrike in Gaza: What Does it Mean for Peace and Security in the Region?

Israeli Army confirms death of Hamas’ 3rd-in-command in recent Gaza attack

The Israeli Army has confirmed the death of Marwan Issa, a key figure in the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) during an airstrike carried out at the beginning of the month in the Nuseirat refugee camp, in the center of the Strip from Gaza. Issa, who was considered to be Hamas’s ‘number two’, helped organize attacks on October 7 that left around 1,200 dead and 240 hostages. His death was previously announced by White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan last week.

Another senior Hamas member, Commander Ghazi Abu Tamaa, head of the combat and administrative assistance staff, was also killed in the same attack according to reports. The Israeli army launched its offensive against Gaza in response to these attacks. Since then, more than 32,300 Palestinians have been reported dead by Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza plus more than 420 due to actions of security forces and Israeli settlers in West Bank and East Jerusalem.
