The IDF says troops nabbed several terror operatives who attempted to hide among a group of civilians evacuating from combat zones in southern Gaza’s Khan Younis.

According to the IDF, the operatives were captured by the 7th Armored Brigade while trying to flee with the civilian population.

The IDF says the troops killed several more gunmen and located weapons in the area.

Also in Khan Younis, the IDF says the Givati Brigade raided several Hamas sites, locating weapons, and an airstrike was carried out against a Hamas cell operating a drone.

In central Gaza, the IDF says the Nahal Brigade killed several Hamas gunmen over the past day.

Meanwhile in Gaza City, the IDF has continued a large-scale operation in the Zeitoun neighborhood.

The IDF says Nahal troops captured weapons and destroyed a rocket launching site in the area.

In the nearby Shati camp, the IDF says another Hamas cell operating a drone was targeted in an airstrike.

The Israeli Air Force carried out several more strikes across the Strip over the past day, targeting Hamas’s air unit and several rockets launchers that would have been used to fire projectiles at Israel, the IDF says.
