During operational activity by the 551th Division yesterday, a large teddy bear was found containing sniper rifles and ammunition inside a school. Additionally, in a nearby school, weaponry was found hidden in classrooms, some concealed in UNRWA bags.

"The Hamas terrorist organization is using children's games to conceal weapons, while deliberately putting the children of Gaza at risk", the IDF spokesman noted.

"Throughout the war, weapons were found hidden in children's items and play areas including in a girl's backpack, under children's beds, in schools, and in playgrounds", he added.
