As part of the ongoing war against terror and and its infrastructure, IDF forces operated last night (31 Dec.) in the city of Khan Yunis, in the southern Gaza Strip

The IDF demolished the house of the Hamas terrorist, Yassin El Ra, who was killed by IDF forces on 9 December 2002, while resisting arrest. A bag containing pipe bombs, a Kalashnikov rifle, magazines, and Hamas propaganda pamphlets were found on his corpse. El Ra was planning on carrying out a terror attack in the near future against IDF soldiers in the Gaza Strip. IDF soldiers left the city of Khan Yunis once they had concluded their operation.

The IDF will continue to operate against the terror infrastructure in the Gaza Strip, in order to protect the safety of the citizens of Israel and IDF soldiers.
