The Israeli Air Force, being directed by ground troops, killed dozens of Hamas operatives in the Gaza Strip over the past day, according to the IDF.

In one incident, the IDF says troops of the Bislamach Brigade and Border Defense Corps’ 636th Combat Intelligence Collection unit identified armed Hamas operatives in Gaza City’s Shejaiya, and directed a drone strike.

The IDF releases footage showing the strike.

In another incident, it says troops of the 7th Armored Brigade identified a group of gunmen exiting a health clinic, and directed a strike on them.

Separately, the IDF says troops of the 460th Armored Brigade discovered explosive devices and weapons inside a home in northern Gaza’s Jabaliya.

The IDF says some of the weapons were hidden inside bags bearing the UNRWA logo.

It says the troops also found a truck full of long-range rockets near a school in the area.

Meanwhile, the 551st Brigade discovered a rocket launching site in Jabaliya, with some 50 launchers, some of them loaded, according to the IDF.
