As part of the ongoing war against the terror infrastructures, IDF forces operated last night in a number of areas in the Gaza Strip.

Infantry forces operated in Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip, and arrested three wanted Palestinians. Two Kalashnikov rifles were found on one of the Palestinians.

During an initiated operation in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, IDF infantry and engineering forces uncovered an explosives lab containing some 50kg of explosives, pipe bombs and other explosives at various stages of preparation. The lab was demolished in a controlled manner by the IDF forces. There were no reports of casualties among the IDF soldiers.

The IDF operations against the weapon-producing workshops are an important component of the steps taken to combat terror and its infrastructure.

The IDF will continue to operate against the terror infrastructures in order to protect the citizens of Israel and IDF soldiers.
