According to The Times of Israel:
Israel announced the start of a military operation in the Gaza Strip on Friday afternoon with multiple strikes on targets of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group, with leaders saying the actions were necessary after the group refused to back down from its intentions to carry out attacks against the country.
The military said six sites were hit by fighter jets and armed drones as it launched Operation Breaking Dawn. One of the strikes killed one of the PIJ’s senior commanders.
The IDF also targeted the head of the anti-tank guided missile array and several squads preparing attacks. The army estimated that between 10-20 terror operatives had been killed in the opening wave of airstrikes.
>The Hamas-run health ministry said at least 10 people had been killed, including a 5-year-old girl, and 55 others wounded.
Hamas is a U.S.-designated terrorist group.
“Islamic Jihad planned a murderous attack against civilians, and we broke the entire chain of perpetrators and planners. It won’t end over the next few hours,” a senior IDF officer told Israeli news site Ynet.
“We always make a great effort to avoid collateral damage in Gaza, and so it will be this time as well. [Islamic] Jihad planned an attack and it backfired on them.
“The Israeli government will not allow terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip to set the agenda in the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip and threaten the citizens of the State of Israel. Anyone who tries to harm Israel should know: we will find you,” said Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid in a statement.

India wins T20 series from West Indies with game to spare
LAUDERHILL, Fla. (AP) — India clinched the Twenty20 series against West Indies with a game to spare after winning the fourth by 59 runs on Saturday.
The Indians posted 191-5 and bowled out West Indies for 132 in the last over to the delight of the pro-India crowd.
The game was delayed for 45 minutes after morning rain and West Indies hoped to take advantage by bowling first.
But those plans were ruined when India captain Rohit Sharma, recovered from a back spasm which forced him to retire in the third T20 on Tuesday, and Suryakumar Yadav took 25 runs from the third over bowled by medium-pacer Obed McCoy.
By the time both openers were dismissed, India had blasted 61 runs in the powerplay.
“Conditions were not easy, we batted really well. Lot of thought with that,” Sharma said. “How we bowled was good to see as well. Pitch was so slow, and you can use that to your advantage.”
West Indies pegged back India some through the middle overs, but the visitors produced a decent ending — if not the 200 total they seemed set to earn — thanks to Hishabh Pant’s 31-ball 44, Axar Patel’s 8-ball 20 not out and Sanju Samson’s 23-ball 30 not out.
McCoy produced West Indies best T20 bowling figures of 6-17 in the second game on Monday, and five days later suffered the teams worst bowling figures of 2-66.
The chase sputtered as West Indies batters made starts but then were often out going for one more big hit. Captain Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell top-scored with 24 each.
India medium-pacer Avesh Khan, criticized for combined figures of 1-78 in the previous two games, took a match-best 2-17 after rooting out the first two wickets. He caught and bowled Brandon King and got a miscue from Devon Thomas.
“Feel really good, since I didn’t do well in the last two matches,” Khan said. “I bowled hard lengths. I just talked to my coaches and captain. They said, ‘We are backing you.’”
Pooran took the attack to Patel in the fifth over and scored 4-6-0-6-6 then ran himself out.
Patel got Kyler Mayers and Powell caught on the boundary, and West Indies was 82-5 in the ninth over. The required run rate crept to 10 and never went back under.
Arshdeep Singh dropped Jason Holder on 3 off the bowling of legspinner Ravi Bishnoi and ended up bagging the batter on 13. Singh grabbed 3-12 off 19 balls with the result already clear.
Bishnoi earned the wickets of Akeal Hosein and Shimron Hetmyer in his last over to take 2-27.
The fifth and last T20 is on Sunday on the same ground.
