Additionally, the Israeli army “conducted a targeted raid on a Hamas Internal Security Forces command and control center in Jabalya where they located observation and control materials, weapons, and maps.”

Moreover, on Monday, “Israeli Navy forces supported ground troops with strikes on dozens of operational targets belonging to terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip. These targets include compounds from which terrorists attacked and fired mortar shells at the forces.”

Jabalya, north of the Gaza Strip, has been targeted on Saturday where more than 100 Palestinian civilians died and scores more were injured, according to Palestinian news agency WAFA reported. The report said a residential building was targeted by a “massively huge Israeli missile strike.” Israel did not comment on the Jabalya attack.

The war between Hamas and Israel erupted on October 7 when the militant group launched a surprise attack on Israel from the Gaza Strip. Hamas fighters breached security barriers and entered southern Israel. Their incursion was accompanied by a barrage of rockets.

Israel had said the Hamas attacks on October 7 killed 1,200 people, most of them civilians, and the militia, originally, took more than 240 hostages in one of the deadliest attacks in Israel’s history. Immediately afterwards, Israel commenced air campaigns on Gaza and launched the recent ground offensive which has resulted in the deaths of nearly 16,000 Palestinians, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.
