Under a cemetery: a terror tunnel, hideouts for senior Hamas officials
The 98th Division raided an underground tunnel located under the Bani Suheila cemetery in the heart of Khan Yunis. While investigating the tunnel, the forces came across explosives, sliding doors and blast-proof doors, and eliminated terrorists who were inside. Inside the tunnel route, the forces located an office from which a Khan Yunis Brigade battalion commander managed the attack on October 7th, an operations room, a command and control center and the living quarters of senior officials of the Hamas terrorist organization. The tunnel was also used by Hamas to command their attacks against IDF forces both above and below ground.
This tunnel, dug by the Hamas terrorist organization, is part of a complex underground labyrinth, about a kilometer long and 20 meters deep. At the end of the investigation, the tunnel was demolished by forces of the Yahalom special engineering unit.

IDF: Throughout the day, a number of launches were identified that crossed from Lebanon into northern Israel.
In response, IDF soldiers struck the sources of the fire, as well as additional areas in Lebanon.
Furthermore, IDF fighter jets carried out precise strikes on two Hezbollah military sites in which a number of Hezbollah terrorists were identified in the area of Yaroun in southern Lebanon. The Hezbollah terror organization deliberately embeds its military infrastructure in civilian areas, using Lebanese civilians as human shields for its terrorist activity.
Additionally, earlier today, IDF soldiers struck a launch site used to fire at northern Israel.
Hezbollah’s ongoing terrorist activity and attacks against Israel violate UN Security Council Resolution 1701. The IDF will continue to defend Israel’s borders from any threat.

IDF: The Commander of the 98th Division: “We are engaged in a simultaneous maneuver – fighting both above and below ground.” The forces continue to fight in the area and to dismantle Hamas battalions from the Khan Yunis Brigade.
During the fighting in Khan Yunis, combat teams from the 98th Division raided hundreds of locations with terrorist infrastructure and Hamas posts. The infrastructure included the battalion headquarters, the Hamas terrorist organization’s training compounds, communication posts, the Khan Yunis Brigade’s command center, a military intelligence building, a significant rocket manufacturing facility, and offices of many senior officials, including Yahya Sinwar’s office.
The combat in Khan Yunis involves simultaneous maneuvering with an integration of forces both above and below ground. So far, hundreds of tunnel shafts have been located and destroyed, some leading to significant strategic Hamas tunnels. In addition, hundreds of terrorists have been eliminated underground, in both face-to-face combat and aerial strikes. The forces are making significant progress in dismantling the underground terrain in Khan Yunis.
From the words of the Commander of the 98th Division, BG Dan Goldfus: “We are engaged in a simultaneous maneuver – fighting both above and below ground, operating with professionalism, with cooperation between special forces, commandos, and the division’s combat teams. Hamas terrorists are fleeing. We are striking them and their infrastructure both above and below ground.”

IDF: A Hamas terrorist cell that hid inside the “Ibn Sina” Hospital in Jenin and planned to carry out a terror attack in the immediate period was neutralized
During a joint IDF, ISA, and Israel Police counterterrorism activity overnight, Mohammed Jalamneh, a Hamas terrorist who had recently been involved in promoting significant terrorist activity and was hiding in the “Ibn Sina” Hospital in Jenin was neutralized. The wanted suspect also carried a gun, which was confiscated by the security forces.
Mohammed Jalamneh, 27, who had been in the Jenin Camp for a long period, had contacts with Hamas headquarters abroad and was even wounded when he tried to promote a car bombing attack. In addition, Jalamneh transferred weapons and ammunition to terrorists in order to promote shooting attacks, and planned a raid attack inspired by the October 7th massacre.
Along with Jalamneh, two additional terrorists who hid inside the hospital were neutralized. Mohammed Ghazawi from the Jenin Camp, a terrorist operative of the Jenin Battalions who was involved in numerous attacks including firing at IDF soldiers in the area, and Basel Ghazawi from the Jenin Camp, Mohammed’s brother, an Islamic Jihad terrorist organization operative involved in terror activities in the area.
Jalamneh planned to carry out a terror attack in the immediate future and used the hospital as a hiding place and therefore was neutralized. Israeli security forces will continue to act against any threat that would endanger the security of Israeli civilians.
For a long time, wanted suspects have been hiding in hospitals and using them as a base for planning terrorist activities and carrying out terror attacks, while they assume that the exploitation of hospitals will serve as protection against counterterrorism activities of Israeli security forces. This is another example of the cynical use of civilian areas and hospitals as shelters and human shields by terrorist organisations.

IDF: Cleared for Publication: During the war, the IDF has implemented new capabilities to neutralize underground terrorist infrastructure in the Gaza Strip by channeling large volumes of water into the tunnels
In cooperation between units in the IDF and the Ministry of Defense, various tools were developed to channel large volumes of water into Hamas’ terror tunnels in the Gaza Strip. This is part of a range of tools deployed by the IDF to neutralize the threat of Hamas’ subterranean network of tunnels.
These capabilities consist of installing pumps and pipes, the materialization of engineering developments, and the ability to locate tunnel shafts suitable for the deployment of these tools. The capability was developed in a professional capacity, including analysis of the soil characteristics and the water systems in the area to ensure that damage is not done to the area’s groundwater. The pumping of water was only carried out in tunnel routes and locations that were suitable, matching the method of operation to each case.
This project was developed following combat procedures, accelerated force-building efforts, and while training forces with technological expertise. This tool is one of a range of capabilities developed by the IDF and Israel’s security establishment in recent years in order to operate against Hamas’ underground infrastructure in the Gaza Strip. These efforts against Hamas include air strikes, underground combat operations, and special operations with technological assets.
This tool represents a significant engineering and technological breakthrough in combating the threat of underground terror infrastructure and is the result of a collaborative effort between various bodies in Israel’s security establishment.
IDF: The Chief of the General Staff to reservists in the Gaza Division: There will be no cover for terrorism in Gaza, in Judea and Samaria, in Lebanon, neither above ground nor in tunnel shafts. We will operate in the most complex places
Today (Tuesday), the Chief of the General Staff, LTG Herzi Halevi, met reserve commanders from Battalion 8208, who lost 21 of their soldiers last week, along with the Commanding Officer of the Gaza Division, BG Avi Rosenfeld, and the Commanding Officer of the Southern Gaza Brigade, COL Tal Ashur.

Attached are the full remarks of the Chief of the General Staff: “This morning soldiers of the Yamam Unit entered into a hospital in Jenin, inside which a terrorist cell was planning to carry out a serious attack and to kill Israeli civilians. We do not want to turn hospitals into battlefields, with patients on the right and doctors and nurses on the left, and terrorists in the middle, but we are even more determined not to allow hospitals in Gaza, Judea and Samaria, Lebanon, above ground or in tunnel shafts and tunnels under hospitals, to become a place that is a cover for terrorism, and one that allows terrorists to stash weapons, to rest, to go out to carry out an attack. And where necessary, we enter even the most complex places to eliminate terrorism, to harm terrorism, to strike terrorists. And where there is fighting, to eliminate them. We are fighting against serious terrorism, it brought us into Gaza with great force, we will continue to operate in Gaza, we will continue to reach wherever Hamas is, we will continue to attack, we will continue to kill terrorists, we will continue to destroy infrastructure. I am impressed by how well you carry out these tasks, you combine very well with all the infantry and armor capabilities, the connection to combat engineering, which was also connected to the difficult event last week. These combinations, professionally and strengthening your spirit and preventing cracks, this is what will give us the ability to go to a long, complex war, and at the end of the road to win a victory that is very important and will also be very clear. There is a lot of appreciation for the battalion’s actions, a lot of appreciation for dealing with the situation.”
