Overnight, troops of the Israeli Navy’s Shayetet 13 commando unit carried out a raid in the southern Gaza Strip from the sea, the Israel Defense Forces says.

The IDF says the forces destroyed Hamas infrastructure and operated in a compound used by the terror group’s naval commando forces.

Other Navy forces participated in the mission, and all the Shayetet 13 commandos left the area and returned to Israel after the operation, the IDF adds.

The Hamas terror group in a statement earlier today claimed to have repelled the Israeli raid from the sea.
