The IDF says troops of the Combat Engineering Corps’ 749th Reserve Battalion destroyed buildings containing Hamas infrastructure at Gaza City’s Al-Azhar University.

According to the IDF, on the university campus, troops found a tunnel entrance that leads to a school around a kilometer away. The forces found explosive devices, parts of rockets, launchers and other equipment in the area.

“The findings show that the Hamas terror organization used the university building for the purpose of fighting against our forces,” the IDF says.

Separately, reservists of the 14th Armored Brigade raided a Hamas observation post in the Shati area. The IDF says the troops found 200 handheld radios, dozens of cameras, as well as a tunnel and weapons.
