IDF says it carried out strike on Hamas multi-launch rocket system, 2 weapon depots

Judah Ari Gross is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces says it has destroyed a multi-launch rocket system in the city of Khan Younis in southern Gaza, as well as two weapons caches, as the Israeli military continues to conduct strikes in the Palestinian enclave.

The strike on the Hamas launchpad “prevented rocket fire at Israel,” the IDF says.

In video footage released by the IDF, secondary explosions can be seen after the strike, indicating that several rockets were inside the launcher when it was destroyed.

According to the IDF, one weapons cache was located in the home of the deputy head of Hamas’s air force in central Gaza and the other in the home of another member of the air force in Khan Younis.
