The targets included about 55 tunnels used for smuggling weapons and 20 spots used for launching rockets.

IAF aircraft aided by ground forces hit 22 crews of armed gunmen. In one case, a ground force spotted terrorists laying an explosive device and called in the IAF which hit the terrorists.
 
Troops operating in the northern Gaza Strip encountered several gunmen armed with anti-tank missiles and light weapons. The troops directed the Air Force to successfully hitting the gunmen.
 
Working with infantry troops in northern Gaza, a combat engineering force carried out a controlled detonation of a tunnel leading into Israeli territory in the vicinity of the Nahal Oz terminal. The tunnel, uncovered on Monday in a joint army and intelligence, was apparently intended to be used to kidnap Israeli citizens or soldiers.
