IDF Updates – April 8th

IDF: Following the sirens that sounded in the city of Safed in northern Israel, the IDF Aerial Defense Array successfully intercepted a launch that crossed from Lebanon into Israeli territory.
Earlier today, numerous additional launches were identified crossing from Lebanon into the area of Har Dov in northern Israel. No injuries were reported. IDF soldiers struck the sources of the fire.

Over the past hours, IAF fighter jets struck Hezbollah operational infrastructure in the area of Kfarkela and a rocket launcher in the area of Yaroun in southern Lebanon.

IDF: Hamas rocket launchers embedded inside a humanitarian area in western Khan Yunis used to fire rockets at Israel were struck by the IDF

Following precise intelligence and operational identifications, IAF fighter jets conducted a number of strikes over the last few days on three Hamas rocket launch posts embedded inside a humanitarian area in western Khan Yunis. The launchers were used to carry out launches toward southern Israel throughout the war.

Before the strike, the IDF confirmed the evacuation of civilians and precisely struck the launchers. No uninvolved civilians were harmed by the strikes.

This is another example of Hamas’ exploitation of humanitarian compounds and areas for its terrorist activities and its use of the civilian population as a human shield.

Yesterday (Sunday), three launches were identified crossing from the area of Khan Yunis toward communities near the Gaza Strip in Israel. The launches fell in open areas. Following this, IAF aircraft struck the post from which the launches were carried out, along with additional terrorist infrastructure located in the vicinity of the launch post.

Attached are infographics of the rocket launchers embedded in the humanitarian area:

IDF: Overnight (Monday), IAF fighter jets struck and eliminated Ali Ahmed Hassin, the commander of the Hezbollah terrorist organization’s Radwan Forces in the Hajir region. The strike was carried out in the area of Sultaniyeh in southern Lebanon.

Ali Ahmed Hassin was a senior operative in the terrorist organization and held a rank equivalent to that of brigade commander. In his role, he was responsible for planning and carrying out terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians in northern Israel.

Since the beginning of the war, Hassin carried out numerous launches toward Israeli territory. During the strike overnight, two additional Hezbollah terrorists who were under his command were eliminated.

IDF: A short while ago, IDF fighter jets struck Hezbollah military infrastructure in the area of Khiam where an operative belonging to the terrorist organization was identified.

Overnight, IDF fighter jets struck a Hezbollah military compound in Kfarkela in southern Lebanon.

Earlier today (Monday), an explosive Hezbollah UAV that crossed into Lebanon fell in an open area in the Rosh HaNikra area. No injuries were reported.

Following the sirens that sounded in the area of the Upper Galilee earlier today, an interceptor was launched toward a suspected aerial target that crossed from Lebanon. It was later determined to be a false identification.

IDF: The Spokesperson of the Islamic Jihad Political Bureau discloses to Unit 504 of the Intelligence Directorate: “Terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip are operating from all of the hospitals in the Gaza Strip; “The organization lied and fabricated a story about an Israeli rocket hitting a hospital at the start of the war.”

During the precise, intelligence-based operation carried out by the IDF and the Israel Security Agency (ISA) in the Shifa Hospital, more than 500 terrorist operatives associated with terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip were apprehended. The terrorists, who were transferred to Unit 504 of the Intelligence Directorate and the ISA, included senior officials and operatives who are significant sources of information for the terror organizations. Among the terrorists detained was the spokesperson for the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization’s Political Bureau in the Gaza Strip, Tariq Salami Otha Abu Shlouf, whose interrogation provides insight into the propaganda and incitement operations carried out by the terrorist organizations.

During the interrogation, Tariq revealed details of the operational method used by the terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip to manipulate the Arabic and international media, with a focus on creating false narratives and lies about what is happening in the Gaza Strip. Moreover, Tariq admitted that the explosion in the Al-Ahli Al-Ma’mdani Hospital at the beginning of the war was caused by an Islamic Jihad rocket, and that the organization chose to knowingly lie and blame Israel for the event.

Tariq acted to incite terror and propaganda operations from within the Shifa Hospital and admitted to the use of the hospital compound and medical equipment for terrorist purposes, such as using ambulances to transport senior operatives of the terrorist organizations into and out of the hospital.

Attached is the interrogation of the spokesperson of the Islamic Jihad’s Political Bureau, Tariq Salami Otha Abu Shlouf, by Unit 504:
