As the battle with terrorist groups in Gaza continues to rage, IDF forces have taken the fight to Hamas in its vast network of underground tunnels, many of which lead into Israeli territory for attacks against both military and civilian targets.

On Thursday, the military released footage from an underground gun battle, in which soldiers from the IDF's Givati Brigade killed at least one terrorist.
