Israeli fighter jets and other aircraft struck numerous targets across the Gaza Strip over the past day, including weapon depots and cells of terror operatives, the military says.

In one incident, the IDF says it carried out a drone strike against a cell that had fired an anti-aircraft missile at an Israeli attack helicopter operating over Gaza.

The helicopter was not under any real threat, the military says, adding that an adjacent weapons warehouse used by the cell was also destroyed in a strike.

In northern Gaza, two Hamas operatives were killed in a separate drone strike, the IDF says.

In the Netzarim Corridor area in the Strip’s center, the IDF says airstrikes were carried out against several gunmen spotted by troops of the Alexandroni Brigade.

Also in the corridor, a strike was carried out against a rocket launching site used to attack troops yesterday, the military says.

Meanwhile in southern Gaza’s Rafah, the IDF says troops killed several gunmen in close-quarters combat, sniper fire, and by calling in airstrikes.
