IDF pushes further into Khan Younis

The IDF says the 98th Division continues to advance in southern Gaza’s Khan Younis, as the Air Force carries out strikes on dozens of Hamas targets, writes the Times Of Israel.

The IDF says that in one incident, two Hamas operatives popped out of a tunnel and opened fire at forces of the Duvdevan unit, who responded by killing the gunmen and destroying the tunnel shaft.

In northern Gaza, the 460th Brigade has advanced in the Jabaliya camp, capturing a main Hamas outpost in the area and killing several operatives in the process, the IDF says. Tunnels and weapons were found in the area.

The IDF says the Navy has continued to assist the ground forces, carrying out strikes and shelling of Hamas sites along the coast.
