The IDF releases new footage showing troops of the Golani Infantry Brigade fighting Hamas in Gaza City’s Shejaiya neighborhood.

It says the troops have so far uncovered some 15 tunnel shafts, discovered weapons, and killed numerous Hamas operatives in the neighborhood.

In an incident several days ago, the IDF says the Golani troops encountered a group of Hamas gunmen who opened fire from a school in Shejaiya. The school complex was booby-trapped, and the IDF says the operatives tried to lure the soldiers into an ambush. The gunmen were killed following a battle, it says.

Golani’s battles in Shejaiya come as a new group of conscripts are drafting to the brigade today.

The IDF in its statement also notes the heavy battles Golani forces fought during the 2014 Gaza war in Shejaiya.

“The commanders and the [troops] of the Golani brigade returned to fight in the Shejaiya area, and are attaining significant achievements and causing damage to the capabilities of the Hamas terror organization,” it says.
