According to the Israeli army, it killed “dozens of terrorists” in the Gaza Strip during the course of the night.

 “Over the past day, there were numerous attempted attacks on IDF troops from tunnel shafts and military compounds in the northern Gaza Strip,” the IDF said on Saturday morning.

Israeli soldiers killed the terrorists, found weapons by Hamas and uncovered tunnel shafts “used for terrorist purposes,” according to the statement.


In addition to demolishing “three Hamas observation posts,” Israeli tanks battled fifteen militants, resulting in the deaths of several Hamas members.

In the meantime, the IDF conducted a targeted overnight raid in southern Gaza with the goal of “neutralizing explosive devices and mapping out buildings.”

During the operation, the troops encountered a terrorist cell exiting a tunnel shaft.

In response, the troops fired shells toward the terrorists and killed them.”

After Hamas militants ruthlessly stormed Israeli towns bordering Gaza on October 7, killing 1,400 people and capturing 249 more, Israel declared its aim to destroy the organization.

Then, while Israel continued to brutally pound the coastal strip from the air, it began to march into Gaza on foot.The Gaza Health Ministry, which is operated by Hamas, reports that since the start of the battle, over 9,200 Palestinians have died in Gaza.

Hamas, which rules the densely populated, walled-off coastal territory, is considered a terrorist organization by Israel, the EU, and the US.
