The IDF is continuing to strike terror targets in the Gaza Strip in recent hours.

Palestinian Arab sources reported six dead in an attack in Khan Yunis. Al Jazeera TV reported at least 33 dead within two hours in IDF strikes in the Gaza Strip.

The Gazan “health ministry” reported 51 dead and 281 wounded in air strikes overnight Wednesday.

Meanwhile, IDF soldiers captured two illegal residents from Gaza, who were not armed, near the Sde Teiman Airfield in the Negev.

It is believed the two crossed the border on Saturday. They were transferred for further questioning by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet).

On Tuesday evening, around 11:45 p.m., a warning was activated about a hostile aircraft infiltrating Kibbutz Nachal Oz, located near the Gaza border. A suspected infiltration by a hostile aircraft was later ruled out.

Al Jazeera on Wednesday evening aired footage that shows the release of hostages by Hamas terrorists during the mass attack this past Saturday.

In the video, a woman and two children who were abducted to the Gaza Strip are seen as they are set free and making their way back to Israel.

The woman is Avital Aladjem, a resident of Kibbutz Holit which the terrorists infiltrated on Saturday. She was released by the terrorists at the last minute on the Gaza border, as she was carrying the children of her murdered neighbor, four-month-old Eshel and four-year-old Negev.

The reason behind the airing of the footage is likely an attempt to reduce the harsh international criticism of Hamas after its atrocities were compared to those committed by the Islamic State (ISIS).

Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee, the head of the Arab media division of the IDF Spokesperson's Unit, commented on the Hamas manipulation and said, "After the entire world saw the ugly face of the barbaric organization that executed hundreds of innocent children and women in a terrible massacre, Hamas publishes a propaganda video on its mouthpieces. It is worse than ISIS and we will continue to hit it hard, without stopping,"
