The IDF says it has targeted the homes of nine Hamas commanders throughout the Gaza Strip during its strikes over the last several hours.

“The houses attacked were used as terrorist infrastructure and in some of the houses, weapons depots were even found,” the army says.

Among the houses attacked were the homes of the Beit Hanoun brigade commander, the Beit Haonun company commander, the Gaza City company commander and the Al-Shati brigade company commander, the IDF says.

A home in Shejaiya used by Hamas military intelligence was also targeted, the army adds.
