The IDF says it carried out strikes against some 200 Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip over the past day.

It says the Paratroopers Brigade raided several apartments used by Hamas in Gaza City’s Shejaiya, and found firearms, explosive devices, and other military equipment. Also in the area, it says the troops discovered a 15-meter-long tunnel, which was later destroyed in an airstrike.

In southern Gaza, the IDF says the Commando Brigade directed an airstrike on a Hamas weapons depot in the home of an operative. According to the IDF, the “significant” depot was used by operatives in the area to rearm.

The Commando Brigade also identified seven armed Hamas operatives in the Khan Younis area, and directed airstrikes at them.

Meanwhile, the 646th Brigade raided a building near an UNRWA school, where machinery used to build rockets were found, the IDF says, adding that three tunnel shafts were also found in the area of the school.
