The IDF says troops continue to kill Hamas operatives in southern Gaza’s Khan Younis, as well as in central part of the Strip.

Troops of the 646th Reserve Paratroopers Brigade operating in Khan Younis spotted an RPG-wielding Hamas in a building and another operative with him, and called in an airstrike, the IDF says.

In western Khan Younis, the IDF says soldiers of the Commando Brigade located several tunnel shafts, killed several Hamas gunmen, and raided “significant” sites belonging to the terror group.

The IDF says strikes were also carried out against a four-man Hamas cell planning to ambush troops in Khan Younis.

Meanwhile, in central Gaza, the IDF says the Nahal Brigade killed more than 10 Hamas gunmen over the past day during a number of encounters, including by calling in airstrikes.
