On Saturday evening, AFP reported that one person was killed, in what seems to be a separate IAF strike. The IDF issued a statement saying that members of the Shura Council / Global Jihad were eliminated but did not specify how many had been killed or give further details. The Shura Council had claimed responsibility for the attack on Netivot, a purely civilian target.

According to reports in Gaza, in the morning strike, IAF jets hit a structure used by Hamas in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood of Gaza City. The structure and adjoining buildings were damaged.

In addition, a training facility at Nuseirat and another target at Al Bureij were hit.
