The IDF says it carried out more than 250 strikes in the Gaza Strip over the past day, targeting Hamas operatives and infrastructure belonging to the terror group.

In one incident, the IDF says troops of the Bislamach Brigade and the Border Defense Corps’ 636th Combat Intelligence Collection unit identified a Hamas cell in Gaza City’s Shejaiya neighborhood preparing to fire rockets at Israel.

The soldiers directed an airstrike on the cell, the IDF says, releasing footage of the strike.
