The Israel Defense Forces says tanks and special forces are striking more Palestinian Islamic Jihad observation posts along the Gaza border.

The IDF says seven posts have been hit since this morning.

Meanwhile, the IDF says it struck an Islamic Jihad training site, a weapons warehouse in Khan Yunis, and a military complex in Gaza City which was used by PIJ’s naval force for training purposes and storage.

“The attack on the sites [causes] significant damage to the terror organization’s ability to develop military capabilities,” the IDF says.
