The Israel Defense Forces says it struck a number of Hamas naval targets in the Gaza Strip, as well as a Hamas diver attempting to infiltrate into Israel via the sea.

The IDF says the Khan Younis and Gaza City docks, used by Hamas “to carry out terror attacks on the Israeli coastline,” were hit by artillery fire from missile boats, combat helicopters and ground artillery.

“In addition, Israeli Navy forces killed a Hamas diver who attempted to infiltrate into Israel from the Gaza shores earlier today,” the IDF adds.

The military publishes footage of the strikes.
