As part of an operation conducted by the 162nd Division, the soldiers of the 401st Brigade, directed by intelligence, conducted operational activities against Hamas terrorist targets.

During the operational activities, the soldiers eliminated over 100 terrorists and located and destroyed over 35 terrorist infrastructures belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, including weapons storage and manufacturing facilities. The forces operated special drones that scanned the targets and assisted in the quick elimination of threats. Dozens of terrorists were apprehended in this manner, questioned, and provided intelligence about terrorist organizations, which will assist in future activities. The forces engaged in an operation to uncover areas based on intelligence indicating the presence of Hamas launching and underground means. The forces located and destroyed hundreds of launch pits and launchers.

As part of the force’s operation against terrorist infrastructure, a Hamas terrorist cell fired an anti-tank missile from close range toward Israeli forces. An IAF aircraft responded quickly, identifying and striking the cell. Several terrorists were eliminated in the strike, and the rest were seen escaping and hiding in an ambulance.

In a separate incident, the forces spotted a Hamas sniper who fired from a building adjacent to them. An aircraft struck the sniper, eliminating him.

Israeli forces also destroyed terrorist infrastructure belonging to a senior Hamas terrorist, the commander of the Gaza City Brigade, Ad Aladdin Haddad.
