The IDF deepened its operations in Hamas areas of control across the central and northern Gaza Strip on Thursday, with forces killing some 20 terrorists in Zeitoun over the past 24 hours.

The Israeli military targeted several Hamas terror infrastructure in the Zeitoun area. Ground forces directed fighter jets and aircraft to strike some 10 locations from which attacks were carried out against Israeli forces in Gaza.

One strike targeted a Hamas military site that was still in use by the Gazan terrorists, the IDF said. One terrorist was killed by IDF troops in close combat battles after being identified by soldiers as carrying an RPG.

In the central Gaza Strip, Israeli forces located and destroyed a boobytrapped site from which rockets were most likely launched into Israeli territory, the IDF said.
