IDF ground troops are continuing to operate in the Gaza Strip in parallel to IAF strikes on approximately 200 Hamas terror targets, the IDF reported Monday morning.
"IDF troops struck terror infrastructure located inside a school in Beit Hanoun, from which an attack on the troops was carried out," the IDF said. "In the compound were two tunnel shafts, including a booby-trapped one, explosives, and additional weapons."
"In addition, an IDF aircraft struck vehicles containing missiles, mortar shells, and weapons, thwarting an imminent attack against IDF soldiers. An additional IDF aircraft struck military infrastructure designated for ambushing the troops with anti-tank missiles. IDF troops directed an aircraft to strike a cell of terrorists.
"Following this, a weapons storage facility from which the terrorists exited was struck as well."
On Sunday night, the Israeli Navy "struck a number of Hamas terror targets, assisting with the reinforcement of ground troops. The Hamas terror targets included observation posts belonging to the Hamas naval forces and terrorist infrastructure at the Gaza harbor. The forces also struck with precise munitions Hamas military compounds."
