The Israel Defense Forces says a “significant” number of troops continue to fight in Gaza City’s al-Shati camp.

It says that in one incident, Givati Brigade troops identified civilians in a building, and enabled them to evacuate.

But during the evacuation, Hamas opened fire at the soldiers. The troops returned fire and tanks shelled the gunmen, killing them, and allowing the civilians to continue to evacuate the area, the IDF says.

In another incident, the IDF says the soldiers identified a group of Hamas operatives holed up in a building in al-Shati, and directed an aircraft to strike them.

Meanwhile, a fighter jet struck a Hamas weapons depot in a building in the camp, after a missile was fired from it, the IDF says.

Lastly, in an incident last night, Nahal Brigade troops operating near al-Shati identified four Hamas operatives near them, and directed a drone to strike them. The drone hit three of them, before chasing down the fourth and killing him as well, the IDF says.
