Israeli troops operating in Gaza City’s Shejaiya neighborhood located a Hamas command room based out of a school and health clinic, the IDF says.

The IDF says the Hamas operatives “converted [the sites] from civilian use to terrorist purposes.”

“In this compound, terrorists from [Hamas’s] Shejaiya Battalion were holed up and carried out terror activity,” the military says.

Troops of the Givati Brigade’s Rotem Battalion located a weapons manufacturing plant and dozens of weapons during a raid against the site, including mortars, machine guns, and grenades.

The IDF says the troops also found intelligence documents belonging to Hamas, which were hidden among uniforms and equipment belonging to UNRWA.
