The IDF continued pressing their offensive against Hamas terror squads and infrastructure in the Gaza Strip, with the IDF saying Sunday that it struck 250 targets over the last day.

Targets included terror bases located under civilian cover in places such as schools and mosques.

During the night, an Air Force fighter jet directed by ground forces struck a Hamas military contact site near a mosque in southern Gaza.

Also in southern Gaza, commandos from the IDF’s elite Egoz unit discovered and destroyed underground shafts in Khan Yunis.

A Hamas squad preparing to attack the unit was identified by an aerial drone. The ground forces killed the squad.

In the heart of the Shejaya neighborhood in northern Gaza, soldiers seized a large number of Kalashnikov rifles, grenades, anti-tank launchers, ammunition, and other military equipment.

Khan Yunis is the personal stronghold of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, whose family lives there. Since the war began, the IDF has eliminated two members of the Hamas ruling politburo as well as associates of Sinwar, who live in Khan Yunis.
