The Israeli Army claimed this Monday to have killed dozens of alleged “terrorists” in the framework of the operations carried out during the last 24 hours in the Gaza Strip, most of them in the city of Khan Younis, in the south of the Palestinian enclave.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have indicated in a statement released through their social networks that dozens of them have died in attacks carried out in various parts of the aforementioned town, which has become the main focus in recent weeks. of the confrontations.
Among the units that have participated in these attacks are the 98th Army Division and the Givati brigade, which have also found several weapons warehouses and have seized assault rifles, grenades and magazines, among others. Likewise, Israeli forces have confirmed the death of five other alleged terrorists at the hands of the Nahal brigade in the center of the Gaza Strip.
