Israeli air strike kills Hamas military chief Jabari

The head of the military wing of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, Ahmed Said Khalil al-Jabari, has been killed in an Israeli air strike in Gaza City.

He and another senior Hamas official died when the car they were travelling in was hit.

It appears to have been the first step of an Israeli operation against militant groups in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip.

A series of air strikes are now being reported across Gaza.

Wyre Davies reports from Jersusalem.
