Footage released by the IDF shows troops of the Combat Engineering Corps’ elite Yahalom unit battling Hamas operatives at a home in northern Gaza’s Jabaliya.

The IDF says Yahalom forces received intelligence of Hamas operatives in the area who were planning to attack the troops. It says the forces set out to attack the Hamas sites, and identified suspicious movement in one of the buildings.

The video shows the troops opening fire and hurling grenades into the building. The forces then entered the home and killed two Hamas gunmen.
