Israeli troops continue to operate in southern Gaza’s Rafah “in a precise manner and based on intelligence information,” raiding and destroying several booby-trapped buildings over the past day, the military says in a morning update.

In Rafah’s northwestern neighborhood of Tel Sultan, soldiers of the 401st Armored Brigade killed several gunmen in close-quarters combat, the IDF says.

The IDF says that in the same area, a weapons depot from which an anti-tank missile was fired at troops was destroyed.

Meanwhile, troops also continue to operate in the Netzarim Corridor in the central Gaza Strip.

The IDF says troops killed several armed operatives and demolished buildings used by terror groups in the area.
