IDF Spokesperson Hidai Zilberman says the military last night carried out another phase in the systematic targeting of Hamas’s network of tunnels in the Gaza Strip.
Zilberman tells reporters that around 10 p.m., 52 Air Force planes dropped 122 bombs in 25 minutes on some 40 underground targets that are part of the so-called “metro” spanning 12 kilometers of tunnels. The targets included weapons storage sites and a command center.
He estimates that at least 10 members of terror groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad were killed.
He says the strikes were concentrated in Khan Younis and Rafah in the southern Strip, from where most of the rockets have been launched at Israeli cities.
Regarding Hamas’s claim that it has been targeting Air Force bases, Zilberman says: “They’re trying, but not hitting.”
