The IDF says it has airdropped some seven tons of equipment to hundreds of troops of the 98th Division’s Commando Brigade who are operating in the Khan Younis area of southern Gaza.

It says this is the first time since the 2006 Second Lebanon War that the IDF has airdropped equipment to troops.

A video published by the IDF shows a C-130J transport aircraft of the Israeli Air Force’s 103rd Squadron dropping the equipment.
