According to an army statement on Friday morning, the Israeli army has continued to bombard targets in the Gaza Strip, attacking about 450 targets on land, in the air, and from the sea during the course of the previous day.

According to the statement, troops are still finding and destroying weaponry, tunnel shafts, and other enemy infrastructure. It further stated that during the course of the night, Islamist Hamas’s naval and intelligence assets were also targeted by sea-based precision weaponry.

According to the army, terrorists in the southern city of Khan Younis—which is regarded as a Hamas bastion under its head in Gaza, Yehya al-Sinwar—were struck by pinpoint airstrikes. Two hours passed during the targeted air force strikes. The army encircled al-Sinwar’s home on Wednesday night, prompting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to declare that it is simply “a matter of time” until al-Sinwar is located.

Analysts surmise that al-Sinwar and his cronies are holed up beneath Gaza in a vast system of tunnels. It is also thought that many of the 138 hostages who are still being held are there.

Al-Sinwar and Mohammed Deif, the head of Hamas’ armed wing, are considered to have planned the historic massacre in Israel on October 7, which claimed the lives of about 1,200 Israelis and kidnapped another 240. The incident occurred in the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli army has promised to find these two men.

According to the Health Ministry, which is under Hamas control, at least 17,177 Palestinians have died as a result of Israel’s retaliatory strikes on the Gaza Strip. An further 46,000 people have been injured.
