The Israel Defense Forces says it carried out strikes against some 400 Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip over the past day, and killed several field commanders and other terror operatives.

According to the IDF, the recent strikes focused on Hamas staging grounds across the Gaza Strip — including several in mosques — and against terror operatives preparing rocket fire on Israel.

The IDF says it also struck the entrance of a Hamas tunnel on the Gaza coast and command centers overnight.

The recent strikes have left several Hamas field officers dead, including the deputy commanders of the terror group’s Nuseirat, Shati, and Furqan battalions, the IDF says.
