IDF: Underground terror infrastructure and weapons located by IDF soldiers in the Al-Azhar University in Rimal

Yesterday (Thursday), IDF troops struck compounds containing terror infrastructure used for Hamas’ military activity in the Al-Azhar University located in Rimal in the Gaza Strip.

Within the university campus, IDF troops located terror infrastructure, including an underground tunnel that ran from the university’s yard and continues to a school one kilometer away. Furthermore, numerous weapons, including explosive devices, rocket parts, launchers, explosive device detonation systems, and several technological assets were located and taken for an intelligence analysis and investigation.

The findings show that Hamas exploited the university’s building for attacks against our forces.

IDF troops conducted a targeted raid on a Hamas observation control room in the area of the Shati Hospital, where 200 communication devices and dozens of cameras were located. In the area of the Hamas observation control room, an operational tunnel shaft, magazines, grenades, a sniper post, military equipment and firing holes were also located.

Attached are photos of weapons located in the university campus:

The forces of the 98th Division continue to fight in the Khan Yunis area, a main stronghold of the Hamas terrorist organization. The division’s troops have eliminated dozens of terrorists, conducted searches, destroyed tunnels and directed precise strikes from the ground and air.

The Givati Brigade, the 55th Brigade, and the 4th Brigade are encircling the city and conducting operations and raids on the battalions of the Khan Yunis Brigade of the Hamas terrorist organization. In a sustained raid by the forces, many weapons were found in a school, including rocket and mortar launchers, RPGs, explosives, and intelligence materials.

Soldiers of the 4th Brigade secured a Hamas command post inside a mosque where a terrorist cell was hiding. The terrorists were eliminated. Additionally, the forces eliminated a terrorist cell that tried to escape towards an underground tunnel.

Soldiers from the Commando Brigade raided the Hamas strongholds in Khan Yunis. Weapons, artillery launchers and intelligence materials were found in the residence of senior Hamas operatives. In addition, the soldiers are deploying the use of the precise ‘Iron Sting’ munition and are directing airstrikes and ground operations using accurate and precise fire.
