In the Zeitoun area of Gaza, a group of Palestinian terrorists, identified as members of Hamas, was captured on video making their escape in an ambulance after an airstrike. The footage, released by the IDF on Sunday, shows the armed individuals entering the ambulance with markings from the Palestinian Red Crescent.

The IDF reported that their 162nd Division and 401st Brigade were engaged in a mission to locate and eliminate rocket launchers and launch pits when a Hamas terror squad fired an anti-tank missile at close range. In response, Israeli aircraft targeted and killed most of the squad members.

Surveillance from an Israeli drone recorded the remaining armed individuals seeking refuge in an ambulance. The military operation resulted in the elimination of over 100 terrorists, along with the destruction of 35 locations in Zeitoun linked to the two terror groups. These locations included rocket launching sites, weapons manufacturing and storage facilities, tunnel shafts, and operational centers.

In a separate incident, Israeli forces identified a Hamas sniper firing from an adjacent building and conducted an airstrike, eliminating the threat.

Additionally, the IDF destroyed terrorist infrastructure associated with Ad Aladdin Haddad, a senior commander in Hamas’s Gaza City Brigade, in a targeted operation.
