The IDF says the troops of the 7th Armored Brigade raided a Palestinian Islamic Jihad weapons manufacturing plant in West Khan Younis.

At the site, troops destroyed a lathe used to manufacture projectiles, several long-range rockets, anti-tank missiles, and mines, as well as explosive devices stored in bags bearing the UNRWA logo, according to the IDF.

A tunnel network under the site was also demolished, the IDF says.
