IDF says it’s hit 600 targets in Gaza so far, including bunker dug under school

Judah Ari Gross is The Times of Israel's religions and Diaspora affairs correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces says it has bombed upwards of 600 targets in the Gaza Strip over the past two and a half days, including over 100 in the past day alone.

The IDF says they include a Hamas bunker that was dug underneath a school “and in proximity to other civilian buildings.” The military accuses the terror group of deliberately positioning military targets in densely populated areas to use the civilians nearby as human shields.

The IDF says overnight it also destroyed the home of a Hamas commander, Iyad Tayib, who is responsible for the group’s central Gaza battalion. The military says his house was “used as terrorist infrastructure,” without elaborating.

“The IDF will continue to strike terror targets throughout the Gaza Strip and will continue to act as necessary,” the military says.
