Troops of the IDF’s 7th Armored brigade raided a Hamas training compound in southern Gaza’s Khan Younis, where they located and destroyed replicas of Israeli armored vehicles used for training, the military says.

The IDF says the compound was used as a training site, as well as a meeting point for senior Hamas commanders of its Khan Younis Brigade.

In addition to the replica tank and other mock armored vehicles, the troops found several tunnel shafts, dozens of rocket launchers and other weapons, the IDF says.
