The Israel Defense Forces says it is employing new tactics to provide troops with quick intelligence amid fighting in the Gaza Strip.

It says there are dozens of small teams in the Military Intelligence Directorate that work with individual divisions and brigades that are operating in Gaza.

The teams, being used for the first time, are tasked with collecting intelligence from various sources in the Military Intelligence Directorate and other agencies, and making them accessible to forces on the ground.

In an example given by the IDF, an intelligence team for the Golani Brigade notified troops on the ground that there were a number of Hamas operatives near them. Within 10 minutes, the troops directed artillery fire and engaged the gunmen, killing seven of them.
