Soldiers of the Maglan and Egoz units of the Commando Brigade, in cooperation with Shayetet 13, arrived covertly in the area and began moving from building to building together with the ISA coordinators through terrorist infrastructure in ‘Hamad Towers’, which are significant multi-story buildings in the area used by the Hamas terrorist organization.

The soldiers apprehended many terrorists who surrendered, including a Hamas sniper cell commander and two Hamas squad commanders. In addition, the soldiers located numerous weapons, including Kalashnikov rifles, grenades, vests, RPGs, explosives, ammunition, explosive kits, and closed-circuit diving systems intended for military and terrorist use.

<hr>Joint IDF and ISA announcement:

The IDF and ISA eliminated the Hamas terrorist responsible for rocket fire in central Gaza; IDF troops are continuing to dismantle Hamas’ Rocket Unit in Gaza and responding to launches toward Sderot yesterday

Over the past day, following IDF and ISA intelligence, IDF troops eliminated Omar Atiya Daruish Aladdiny, the Hamas terrorist responsible for rocket fire in the area of the central camps in the Gaza Strip. Aladdiny was a Hamas operative for several decades, responsible for embedding its rocket arsenal in Gaza and firing rockets at Israel since Operation Cast Led (2008-9), up to and including the current war. Aladdiny played a central role in the preparations for the October 7th Massacre. During the war, he directed rocket launches toward Israeli civilian areas, including Tel Aviv and communities in southern Israel, and was responsible for heavy fire directed at IDF ground troops in Gaza.

Furthermore, in response to the recent rocket fire toward southern Israel, including the city of Sderot, the IDF and IAF carried out joint strikes on Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror targets in the area of Jabalya in northern Gaza. Among the targets struck were operational centers used by terrorists as hiding places and to store weapons, additional weapons storage facilities, launch pits, and tunnel shafts.
