The Israel Defense Forces says troops of the 551st Brigade scanning residential homes in Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza found dozens of weapons, equipment, and intelligence materials.

The IDF says the cache included assault rifles, submachine guns, grenades, explosive devices, protective gear, and drones that are used by Hamas to drop explosives.

Some of the weapons and equipment were destroyed, while some were taken to Israel for further research, the IDF says.

Separately, the IDF says special forces located and destroyed a bomb-making lab in the Gaza Strip today.

The military also publishes a new video showing troops in the Strip.
