The Jerusalem Post reports:
Hamas affiliated media sources reported on Saturday that one of the group’s naval operatives died overnight during a mission at sea opposite the Gaza coast, Israel Radio reported.
Palestinian media initially reported that the deceased was a fisherman who drowned when he fell off his boat.
Israel news outlet Walla named the commando as Hamdi al-Sultan, adding that he died while carrying out a ‘jihadi mission.’
The IDF does not comment on incidents that occur outside of Israeli territory.
In September, Hamas announced that another member of its naval commando unit drowned in a training accident off Gaza.
