IAF fighter jets this morning (Sunday), directed by IDF and ISA intelligence, struck terrorist infrastructure in which Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists were operating.

The terrorists operated from within buildings that previously served as an UNRWA headquarters and which the terrorists used as a shield for their terrorist activities.

According to the IDF, before the strike, many precautionary measures were taken to reduce the risk of harming civilians. These included aerial surveillance, the use of precise munitions, and additional intelligence measures.

The IDF noted: "This is another example of Hamas' systematic exploitation of civilian infrastructure and the civilian population as a human shield for its terrorist activities."
