The IDF says troops of the 460th Armored Brigade and the Nahal Brigade’s 50th Battalion discovered one of the largest caches of weapons yet during operations in the northern Gaza Strip.

The cache, located near a health clinic and a school, included hundreds of RPGs, dozens of anti-tank missiles, dozens of explosives, long-range rockets, dozens of grenades, and several drones.

The IDF says some of the weapons were destroyed, while others were taken to Israel for further investigation.

“All of the terror infrastructure was found near civilian buildings in the heart of the civilian population. This is further proof of the cynical use that the Hamas terror organization makes of the residents of the Gaza Strip as a human shield,” the IDF says.
