The Israel Defense Forces says it carried out an airstrike on an ambulance in the northern Gaza Strip, which it identified as being used by a Hamas cell, close to a battle zone.
“A number of Hamas terrorist operatives were killed in the strike,” the IDF says, adding that it will release further information soon.
It says that “more detailed information” on the strike was shared with allies.
“We have information which demonstrates that Hamas’s method of operation is to transfer terror operatives and weapons in ambulances,” the IDF says.
“We emphasize that this area is a battle zone. Civilians in the area are repeatedly called upon to evacuate southwards for their own safety,” it adds in a statement.
