The Israeli army attacked hundreds of military and government targets of the Palestinian militant group Hamas in addition to killing its operatives, the IDF said on Wednesday.

“During wide-scale strikes carried out based on ISA intelligence in the Gaza Strip over the last day, the IDF struck several terrorists and Hamas infrastructure, including terror tunnel shafts, military headquarters, weapons warehouses, mortar launchers and anti-tank missile launchers,” the IDF said on Telegram.

It added: “Overnight the IDF struck Hamas’ emergency operational apparatus, including war rooms, infrastructure and military headquarters. Hamas’ emergency operational apparatus was responsible for setting up blockades that prevented Gazans from evacuating to safer areas in the southern Gaza Strip.”
