GAZA (Reuters) - The Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad said an attack was carried out against the home of one of its officials in Damascus on Tuesday, killing the man’s son.
In a statement issued in Gaza shortly after an Israeli air strike there killed a top Islamic Jihad commander, the group identified the official who it said had been targeted in the Syrian capital as Akram al-Ajouri.
The Islamic Jihad statement did not immediately accuse anyone in the Damascus incident.
Israel’s military declined comment.
