Sources in Gaza report that Raad al-Banaa, responsible for facilitating the entry of humanitarian aid trucks, was killed in an IDF strike on a house in the northern Gaza Strip. It's alleged that he died alongside his wife and children.

It's worth noting that earlier on March 18, Brigadier General Faiq Mabhouh, head of Hamas' internal security operations department, was killed at the Shifa hospital in Gaza City.

Mabhouh was responsible for coordinating Hamas' activities in the Gaza Strip. The Hamas leadership claimed that Faik Mabhouh also oversaw the security of humanitarian aid truck convoys.
