Over the past day, Israel defence force soldiers began operating in the Al-Shati Camp in the northern Gaza Strip. During the operational activity, the soldiers killed numerous terrorists and uncovered a large number of terrorist infrastructure in the area.
During one of the battles with the terrorists, Israel defence force troops identified civilians who were located in a building in the area. The Israel defence force secured an evacuation route for the civilians, and as the civilians were evacuating, terrorists fired at the troops from the outskirts of the area. In order to protect the evacuation route, Israel defence force troops responded with light weapons fire and tanks to kill the terrorists.
In another engagement, Israel defence force troops identified a terrorist cell barricaded inside a house in the area and posed a threat to the forces. Israel defence force troops directed an aircraft and fired at the terrorists, killing the terrorists. In addition, following an identification of an anti-tank missile launched from a weapons storage facility inside a building, a fighter jet struck the source of the fire.
Yesterday, Israel defence force troops operated in the northern Gaza Strip and identified four terrorists in their vicinity. The troops directed a UAV to the area and killed three terrorists. The UAV continued in pursuit of the additional terrorist, who attempted to flee through crowded alleyways and struck him a short while thereafter.
