Footage released by the IDF shows troops of Nahal Infantry Brigade’s 931st Battalion battling Hamas operatives in northern Gaza’s Jabaliya.

The IDF says the forces received intelligence of Hamas members and weaponry in nearby buildings and led an assault on them.

“The terrorists prepared an ambush in the area and were prepared to attack our forces when they would have moved through the main road. The forces arrived through one of the alleys, behind the enemy, surprised them and fired at the terrorists,” the IDF says.

The IDF says the Hamas gunmen opened fire at the troops and hurled grenades. The operatives were killed in the battle.

The 931st Battalion encountered and killed other Hamas operatives during battles in Jabaliya over the past day, the IDF says. Several more gunmen were killed in airstrikes and tank shelling.
