Israeli forces on Tuesday started targeted operations in two areas of the central Gaza Strip based on intelligence indicating terrorist activity there—Bureij and eastern Deir al-Balah.

The operations kicked off with an aerial assault hitting “military” compounds, weapons depots and underground infrastructure. Several Hamas terrorists were killed.

At the same time, ground troops began going after terrorists and infrastructure.

“The troops are operating to dismantle terrorist infrastructure located several kilometers away from the border with Israel above and below ground,” the IDF said.

Israeli forces are also operating elsewhere in the central Strip, including an IAF fighter jet that killed an enemy sniper and another aircraft eliminating a terrorist cell identified by ground troops.

In addition, targeted operations in the Rafah area of southernmost Gaza are continuing, with soldiers locating weapons and killing armed terrorists who posed a threat to them.
