The IDF says “fierce battles” with Hamas operatives in the Gaza Strip continue, as the Air Force carries out strikes against more than 250 targets over the past day.

In a statement, it says the 7th Armored Brigade directed strikes on two rocket launchers used in the barrages on central Israel yesterday.

The IAF strikes also hit several Hamas and Islamic Jihad operatives, alongside infrastructure belonging to the terror groups, the military says.

The IDF says that the Kfir Brigade killed a group of Hamas operatives who were near a school in northern Gaza. Later, the soldiers found and destroyed a tunnel shaft and weapons in the area. In another school in northern Gaza, the soldiers found weapons, according to the IDF.
