The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit announced that on Thursday night, an IAF aircraft struck a launch site placed by the Islamic Jihad inside a shelter in the humanitarian area of Khan Yunis. Various measures were taken prior to the strike to mitigate harm to uninvolved civilians.

“Terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip continue to place weapons and terrorist infrastructure amid the civilian population, endangering them and using them as a human shield,” the IDF stated.

Earlier this week, an IAF aircraft eliminated Muhammad Abu Taha, a drone operator in the Hamas terrorist organization. During the conflict, Abu Taha carried out numerous attacks against IDF forces.

Additionally, IDF troops continue precise, intelligence-based operations in the Rafah area, eliminating terrorists in close-quarters combat. During targeted raids, troops located several tunnel shafts and a structure from which anti-tank missile fire was identified, directing an aircraft to strike and destroy the compound.

In the central Gaza Strip, a number of terrorists identified near IDF troops were eliminated in a drone strike.
