Hamas officials in the Gaza Strip say an Israeli airstrike has killed the commander of its military wing.

Ahmed Jabari becomes the most senior Hamas official to be killed since an Israeli invasion of Gaza four years ago. Jabari has long topped Israel's most-wanted list.

Witnesses say Jabari was traveling in his vehicle in Gaza City when his car exploded.

Israeli officials had said in recent days that they were considering assassinating top Hamas officials following a wave of heavy rocket fire from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
