The IDF releases footage showing troops of the Paratroopers Brigade’s 101st Battalion battling Hamas gunmen inside a building in southern Gaza’s Khan Younis.

According to the IDF, Hamas operatives opened fire from several buildings where the 101st Battalion was operating.

The paratroopers called in airstrikes and tank shelling against the buildings, killing many of the gunmen.

The soldiers then entered the buildings to scan for any potentially surviving operatives. In one of the buildings, at least two gunmen were still holed up, the IDF says.

The soldiers battled the remaining Hamas fighters, killing them.

Seven soldiers of the battalion were wounded, and a dog of the Oketz canine unit was killed in the fighting, the IDF says.
