Israeli soldiers destroyed a Hamas explosives laboratory in the Jabalya area of northern Gaza where the terror organization is attempting to regroup, the IDF announced on Monday.

In addition to the laboratory, troops located a significant amount of military equipment. In recent days, soldiers have eliminated Hamas terror squads in direct confrontations, seizing Kalashnikov rifles, mortars, explosives, and other equipment. The Air Force also destroyed a launch site from which rockets had been fired at Ashkelon, and tunnel shafts.

In central Gaza, soldiers killed several Hamas terrorists in close encounters and by tank fire, including a squad that was observing troops. Jets also destroyed a rocket launcher poised to fire rockets into central Israel.

Overall, Israel carried out airstrikes on more than 75 Hamas targets, including terror squads, weapons storage facilities, rocket launchers, observation posts, and other infrastructure.
