Troops of the IDF’s 98th Division continue to battle Hamas in southern Gaza’s Khan Younis, while the 162nd Division carries out smaller raids in central and northern Gaza, the military says.
Simultaneously, the IDF says the Israeli Air Force and Navy carried out strikes on various Hamas targets across the Strip.
In a morning update, the IDF says the Nahal Brigade spotted and killed a Hamas operative who had been observing the forces and fired an anti-tank missile at them in central Gaza.
Moments later, more missiles were fired toward the soldiers. The IDF says the Nahal troops spotted two operatives coming out of the building from which the missiles were fired, and directed an aircraft to strike and kill the pair.
The Nahal Brigade also directed several more airstrikes on Hamas sites in central Gaza, including a weapons depot, the IDF says.
Meanwhile, in the western Khan Younis, the IDF says the Paratroopers Brigade and Egoz commando unit raided several Hamas sites, killing a number of operatives and locating weapons.
In another area of Khan Younis, the 7th Armored Brigade killed several more Hamas gunmen and the 646th Reserve Paratroopers Brigade located weapons, the IDF says.
Also in Khan Younis, airstrikes were carried out against three weapons depots and a Hamas cell that had fired at troops, the IDF adds.
