The IDF says it has wrapped up its two-week-long raid in Gaza City’s Shejaiya neighborhood, during which combat engineers demolished eight major tunnels and killed more than 150 gunmen.

It publishes new footage showing one of the tunnels, and of it being destroyed by the elite Yahalom combat engineering unit.

In the past day, two tunnels were destroyed in Shejaiya, bringing the total amid the operation to eight, according to the IDF.

In the tunnels, the IDF says troops with the 98th Division found weapons, laptops and other military equipment used by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad operatives.

The IDF also releases footage showing a small drone sent into a building by soldiers of the Paratroopers Brigade and identifying two gunmen.

According to the IDF, tanks shelled the building, killing the pair.
