The Israeli military says it has killed several senior Hamas militant commanders in airstrikes in Gaza and Khan Younis.

The army released a statement on Wednesday, saying that it carried out a ``complex and first-of-its-kind operation.'' Those targeted, it said, were ``a key part of the Hamas `General Staff''' and considered close to the head of the group's military wing.

Hamas had no comment.
