The Israel Defense Forces says its 14th Armored Reserve Brigade captured a key Hamas outpost in the northern Gaza Strip.
The compound, known as the Palestine Outpost, was used by Hamas as a training site to prepare for attacks against Israel.
“Although it was disguised as just a training facility, terrorists set out from the outpost for terror activities,” the IDF says.
It says the 14th Brigade, along with air support and artillery, battled Hamas for control of the outpost.
After capturing the site, the IDF says troops found tunnel shafts, explosive devices and mines.
It says the 14th Brigade has killed dozens of Hamas operatives and destroyed dozens of anti-tank missile and rocket launch sites, observation posts and other infrastructure during its operations in northern Gaza.
