Israeli fighter jets and drones struck some 45 targets across the Gaza Strip over the past day, the military says.

The IDF says the targets included buildings used by terror groups, cells of gunmen, rocket launchers — including a primed one in Rafah — tunnel shafts, and other infrastructure.

The strikes come as troops continue to operate in southern Gaza’s Rafah and in the Netzarim Corridor in the center of the Strip.

In Rafah, the IDF says troops of the Givati Brigade killed several gunmen in close-quarters combat over the past day.

At least 10 more operatives, including a terrorist who participated in the October 7 onslaught, were killed in central Gaza, the military adds.
