GAZA, Nov. 14 (Xinhua) -- Seven Palestinians were killed, including the commander of Hamas military wing, in a series of Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip Wednesday afternoon.

The airstrikes came as Israel announced the beginning of a large-scale military operation in Gaza called "Operation Pillar of Defense".

In the first airstrike, Israeli aircraft targeted the car of Ahmed al-Jaabari, head of Ezz el-Deen al-Qassam Brigades, and killed him and his escort in Gaza City.

The other airstrikes, targeting training sites of Palestinian militant groups and open spaces which Israel said were used to store rockets, killed five civilians, including a one-month-old toddler and two girls aged at seven and 20 respectively.
