Hamas says that three senior military leaders are dead following an Israeli airstrike early Thursday in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas announced the deaths of Mohammed Abu Shamaleh, Mohammed Barhoum, and Raed al-Attar in a text message to the media, The Associated Press says. The three militants were reportedly killed near the town of Rafah.

Palestinian police and health workers say three other people were also killed, and dozens are trapped in the rubble of the four-story building that was hit in the strike.
