332

The conflict between Israel and the Gaza-based Hamas has reached a critical juncture, marked by a flurry of intense military operations, as both sides grapple with escalating tensions. 

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) persisted with their offensive in the northern and southern regions of the Gaza Strip on Saturday. 

This came amidst a backdrop of persistent rocket attacks on southern Israel, further straining an already volatile situation exacerbated by recent tragic events.

In a joint effort between the IDF and Shin Bet security agency, approximately 90 terror operatives were apprehended at the Kamal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza. This facility, suspected to serve as a Hamas base, was raided by troops from the 460th Armored Brigade and the Navy’s Shayetet 13 commando unit. 

The operation unearthed an arsenal of weapons, including assault rifles, RPGs, explosives, and military equipment belonging to Hamas operatives. 

Shockingly, interrogation revealed that weapons were concealed inside incubators in the maternity ward, a despicable tactic that underscores the gravity of the situation.

The conflict between Israel and the Gaza-based Hamas has reached a critical juncture, marked by a flurry of intense military operations, as both sides grapple with escalating tensions.

Simultaneously, the Kiryati Brigade conducted raids on several apartments in Khan Younis, southern Gaza, believed to be used by Hamas members. These operations yielded the discovery of additional weapons caches and tunnels utilized by the operatives, highlighting the extensive efforts to dismantle the group’s infrastructure.

Throughout the day, rockets continued to target communities near the Gaza border, although no casualties or damages were reported, primarily due to the areas having been evacuated since earlier attacks. 

Overnight, Palestinian media associated with Hamas reported intensified Israeli bombardments across the Strip, exacerbating the already precarious situation.

The IDF disclosed that its Commando Brigade’s Maglan unit engaged in fierce battles deep within Khan Younis, even targeting the residence of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar. 

Operations also targeted the home of the head of Hamas’s northern Khan Younis battalion, yielding significant seizures of weapons and intelligence materials.

The recent confrontations underscore the relentless efforts by Israeli forces to dismantle Hamas infrastructure while contending with ongoing rocket attacks. The situation remains highly volatile, emphasizing the urgent need for de-escalation and diplomatic efforts to restore stability to the region.
