Israeli army reports destruction of Hamas centers in the Gaza strip

Israeli military announced the destruction of several Hamas militant strongholds in the Gaza Strip on Friday, December 1, according to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

According to updated information, the IDF carried out strikes on terrorist infrastructure in the Gaza Strip in the past hours. The targets included operational command centers where Hamas militants operated, their underground hideouts, and a military complex. Previously, anti-tank missiles were launched from this complex targeting IDF soldiers.

Israel also eliminated a series of terrorist strongholds throughout the Gaza Strip, with one of them housing over 10 militants. This stronghold operated in close proximity to ground forces and was identified by IDF observers.

During joint ground and aerial operations, IDF forces thwarted the activities of two terrorist strongholds that had fired mortar shells towards IDF troops in the Gaza Strip.

Release of Hamas hostages

Last week, Israel signed an agreement with Hamas for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and the release of hostages. The first group of militants was released on November 24 and transported to hospitals in Israel.

The following day, Hamas released a group of 17 individuals, turning them over to the Red Cross. The third group of 17 individuals released from Hamas captivity was received by the Red Cross on November 26.

Additionally, Hamas released three underage French hostages.

On December 1, Israel resumed military operations in the Gaza Strip, stating that Hamas had violated the terms of the ceasefire.
