Israeli troops operating in the Gaza Strip have located a Hamas drone manufacturing plant and weapons depot inside a residential building.

The Israel Defense Forces says the building, in Gaza City’s Sheikh Radwan neighborhood, is located next to a school.

Footage shows troops finding several Hamas drones in the building, as well as equipment used to manufacture them, and instructions to make explosive devices. It says troops also recovered a number of bombs at the site.

Adjacent to the manufacturing site and weapons depot is a children’s bedroom, the IDF says.
