Israeli soldiers continued pressing attacks on Hamas across the Gaza Strip over the weekend, the IDF said on Sunday morning. This included strikes on a tunnel shaft discovered in the Khan Yunis city hall and a UNRWA school used by the terror group as a command center.

In Khan Yunis, Israeli forces found an operational tunnel shaft inside the municipal building, connected to underground terror infrastructure used by Hamas operatives. The shaft was destroyed from the air after civilians were evacuated.

A day earlier, Israeli aircraft also struck several terrorists operating a command center in a United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) school in the Nuseirat refugee camp.

“The Hamas terrorist organization systematically violates international law, exploiting civilian structures and population as human shields for its terror attacks against the State of Israel,” the army said.

In Shejaya, Israeli forces eliminated several terrorists, dismantled terror infrastructure sites, and found numerous weapons, including explosive devices, AK-47 rifles, machine guns, and pistols. During the operations, IDF troops dismantled a mortar and located an RPG, grenade, and an improvised explosive device.
