The Israel Defense Forces says that overnight it carried out a “targeted raid” in the northern part of the Gaza Strip with infantry forces and tanks.

IDF says troops struck numerous terrorists, infrastructure and anti-tank guided missile launch positions.

The IDF says the raid is part of preparing the border area for the “next stages of the war,” referring to a full ground offensive.

Troops left the area after the raid, the IDF adds.

The raid appears to be the largest IDF incursion into Gaza so far since the start of the war.
