“Ground troops are continuing to operate in the Gaza Strip in parallel to Israeli air force strikes on approximately 200 Hamas terror targets,” according to a situational update released by the Israeli military.
An assault on Israeli forces occurred after IDF forces attacked a school in Beit Hanoun that housed terrorist infrastructure. Among the many weapons and explosives found in the facility were two subterranean shafts, one of which was booby-trapped.
Also, an IDF plane hit vehicles with guns, mortar rounds, and missiles, stopping an impending attack on IDF troops. The Israeli Defense Forces also attacked military targets meant to be attacked by anti-tank rockets.
Israeli Defense Forces soldiers ordered an attack on a terrorist cell. Then, when the terrorists had already departed, a weapons storage facility was also bombed.
As part of its efforts to bolster its ground forces, the Israeli Navy hit multiple terror locations controlled by Hamas overnight. Terrorist infrastructure in the Gaza harbor and observation points belonging to the Hamas naval forces were among the Hamas terror targets. Hamas military sites were also targeted by the forces using accurate weapons.
No third party has confirmed the assertions.
At least 15,523 Palestinians, including 6,600 children, have been killed and 41,316 injured as a result of Israeli military action since 7 October, according to the Gaza health ministry operated by Hamas. It states that a minimum of 6,800 individuals have gone missing.
Following the ambush within Israel by Hamas on October 7—an attack that killed 1,200 and injured 5,600—Israel began its military campaign against the militant group within the densely populated Gaza Strip.
During the fighting, media have been unable to independently confirm casualty counts.
