On Wednesday, a terrorist cell was identified emerging from a tunnel shaft underneath debris in the Khan Yunis area. One of the terrorists was armed with an RPG. IDF ground troops directed a UAV to strike the terrorists. The IDF troops then neutralized the tunnel shaft.
"The IDF is continuing to operate against Hamas terrorists and its underground network of tunnels across the Gaza Strip," a military spokesman said.
Earlier on Thursday, during operations in Jabalya, the troops conducted a targeted raid on a military compound belonging to Hamas’ Central Jabalya Battalion. A number of terrorists were killed as part of the activity.
In addition, the forces located a network of underground tunnels that lead out of the compound, as well as a training area and weapons storage facility in the area of the compound.
