IDF: IDF operations in the Gaza Strip are continuing: an armed terrorist cell was eliminated in an aerial strike

In the central Gaza Strip, a terrorist cell that was advancing toward forces in the area was killed. A number of terrorists who attempted to ambush IDF troops were also identified and struck by an aircraft in a joint ground and aerial operation.

In the northern Gaza Strip, IDF troops identified an armed terrorist cell. The troops responded with fire and killed one of the terrorists.

IDF: Earlier today, IAF fighter jets struck a military structure in Maroun El Ras in southern Lebanon. Several Hezbollah terrorists were located inside the structure. Following the strike on the structure, numerous secondary explosions were identified, indicating the presence of weapons inside the structure.

Additionally, three Hezbollah observation posts and a military compound were struck in the areas of Marwahin, Chihine, Taybeh, and Tayr Harfa in southern Lebanon. IDF troops also struck in Kfarkela and Blida in southern Lebanon.

Hezbollah’s military activity south of the Litani River in Lebanon, including the use and storage of armaments, is a clear violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701. The IDF will continue to defend Israel’s borders from any threat.

IDF: An underground training facility, a mortar fire simulator and a swimming pool to train for naval raids: Soldiers of the 401st Brigade dismantled a Hamas terrorist training base in Daraj Tuffah

The soldiers of the 401st Brigade, operating under the 162nd Division, have been striking military targets in the Daraj Tuffah area, in the northern Gaza Strip, in recent days.

The soldiers conducted a targeted raid on the Hamas’ Al-Jabari outpost in the northern Gaza Strip, which is one of the major training grounds for terrorist operatives. During the operation, the soldiers located a facility for training in underground tunnels, an assault course for training terrorists, a swimming pool where the terrorists trained for maritime raids, a simulator for mortar and weapons fire against IDF soldiers, and offices belonging to the commanders of the post. All structures were dismantled by the soldiers.

In the area of the outpost, a tunnel shaft connected to a 2-kilometer-long offensive tunnel belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization was located. The tunnel was destroyed by the brigade’s soldiers.

Additionally, the soldiers of the combat team operated in an area from which rocket fire was identified this week toward Israeli communities in southern Israel. During the targeted raids in the area, the brigade’s soldiers located a rocket launcher compound. One of the launchers was found near an operational shaft from which two armed terrorists, who planned to shoot anti-tank fire at IDF troops, emerged and were eliminated by the soldiers. The soldiers also found an anti-aircraft missile launch site that was ready for launch. After locating the launchers and conducting combat in the area, the forces destroyed all the launch sites.

Attached are photos of the outpost before it was dismantled:
