The IDF says troops of the Commando Brigade captured dozens of suspected terror operatives in western Khan Younis over the past day, including two terrorists who participated in the October 7 onslaught and another member of Hamas’s elite Nukhba force.

Also during the operations in Khan Younis, the IDF says the Maglan commando unit killed two gunmen from close range and then spotted and killed a third operative on the roof of a school.

During a Maglan raid on the home of a Hamas operative, the IDF says troops found an RPG launcher, diving equipment, and ammunition.

Also in Khan Younis, the Paratroopers and Givati brigades killed more than 20 Hamas operatives during an offensive against the terror group’s sites, the IDF says.

Meanwhile, in northern Gaza, the IDF says the 401st Armored Brigade killed at least ten gunmen during several encounters. The troops also called in an airstrike against a Hamas cell that fired missiles at a tank, the IDF says.

Also in northern Gaza, the IDF says the Border Defense Corps’ 414th Combat Intelligence Collection Unit spotted a cell trying to deliver “technological systems” to Hamas, and struck them with a drone.

In central Gaza, the Nahal Brigade killed several more Hamas operatives over the past day, as well as destroyed Hamas infrastructure, the IDF adds.
