Around 100 Gazans, Many Believed to Be Terrorists, Surrender to IDF in Jabaliya

By Matis Glenn

Close to 100 Palestinians, including an indeterminate amount of Hamas terrorists, surrendered to IDF soldiers in Jabaliya, Gaza Thursday evening, according to the Times of Israel.

Images, discovered by open-sourced intelligence, of the surrender circulated on social media, depicting a large amount of men with their hands behind their backs, without shirts, as IDF soldiers stand over them.

In another image, the men were seen being transported by military vehicles.

It is not known at this time how many of the apprehended people are terrorists, but media reports indicate that a sizeable amount are believed to be Hamas affiliates.

At a press conference later on Thursday, IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said of the pictures:

“Jabaliya and Shejaiya are ‘centers of gravity’… for terrorists, and we are fighting them. They are hiding underground and come out and we fight them. Whoever is left in those areas, they come out from tunnel shafts, and some from buildings, and we investigate who is linked to Hamas, and who isn’t. We arrest them all and interrogate them,” Hagari says in response to a question at a press conference.”

Israel began operations this week in Khan Younis, Jabaliya, and other places in northern Gaza.
