The IDF says it is continuing a pinpoint operation against Hamas and other terror groups in the central Gaza Strip, on the outskirts of the Nuseirat camp.

Troops of the Nahal Infantry Brigade, 401st Armored Brigade and other forces under the 162nd Division have killed numerous gunmen, destroyed buildings used by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, seized weapons, and located rocket launchers, the army says.

Nahal troops are also operating in the so-called Netzarim corridor, a strip of land running from the border with Israel near Be’eri to the coast.

The corridor, built around a road south of Gaza City and north of Nuseirat, enables the IDF to carry out raids in northern and central Gaza while allowing Israel to control access to the north for Palestinians seeking to return after fleeing south.

The IDF says troops killed some 15 gunmen in the Netzarim corridor over the past day.
