The IDF releases footage of the Givati Infantry Brigade operating in southern Gaza’s Bani Suheila, on the outskirts of Khan Younis, during which it says the troops have killed numerous Hamas operatives.

According to the IDF, the Givati soldiers, along with special forces, combat engineers and tanks, have battled Hamas gunmen in close-quarters combat. The soldiers have also directed several airstrikes amid the fighting.

The IDF says in Bani Suheila, the troops have located and destroyed Hamas infrastructure, including communication sites and meeting rooms used by the terror group.

Meanwhile, the IDF says the elite Egoz unit is operating deep within Khan Younis, locating “significant” Hamas tunnel shafts, and striking anti-tank missile positions, observation posts, weapons depots and operatives with guided munitions.
