Gaza factions launched massive rocket barrages at Israel for the second straight day on Wednesday, a day after Israel assassinated a top Islamic Jihad commander.

Baha Abu al-Ata was said to have been behind many recent attacks on Israel. He was killed in an aerial strike on his apartment by alongside his wife. Twenty-one more Palestinians, including one Islamic Jihad field commander, were killed and at least 69 were wounded in Israeli strikes Tuesday and Wednesday.
