The IDF releases footage obtained from the body camera of a Hamas operative that shows members of the terror group boobytrapping a home with explosive devices in southern Gaza’s Khan Younis.

Soldiers of the Paratroopers Brigade found the camera and are using the footage located the building and neutralized the explosive devices, the IDF says.

The IDF says the Paratroopers Brigade has killed dozens of Hamas gunmen in western Khan Younis over the past week, with sniper fire, close-quarters combat, and by calling in airstrikes and tank shelling.

In one engagement, the IDF says a group of paratroopers spotted seven Hamas gunmen at a junction and killed them.

At the same time, another paratrooper force spotted six more operatives, three of whom were killed by tank shelling and the other three who tried to flee by gunfire, according to the IDF.

The IDF says the paratroopers are scanning dozens of buildings in western Khan Younis, to clear them of potential Hamas infrastructure and weapons.
