Gaza Ground Operations

▪️ During the day, IDF forces continued to deepen their activities and achievements in Gaza. We completed the encirclement in the Jabaliya and Zaytoun areas.

▪️ We continued to expose the underground terror routes of Hamas beneath Shifa Hospital. We will continue to expose additional hospitals in Gaza.

Hezbollah Counter Strikes

▪️ In the north, we eliminated several anti-tank units that tried to fire missiles against tanks in the border area of our territory. This area along the contact line is a combat zone, from which Hezbollah conducts terror operations and violates UN Security Council resolutions.

▪️ In response to the warning of hostile aircraft penetration (drones), interceptors were launched towards several suspected aerial targets that crossed from Lebanese territory towards the Western Galilee area.

Potential Ceasefire

▪️ In response to the question of how we will maintain the security of our soldiers in the event of a ceasefire: We know how to arrange ourselves in such a way that will maintain our operational status, our operational achievements, and the framework that will be agreed upon, if it is agreed upon.

Fallen IDF Soldiers

▪️ So far, we have delivered messages to the families of 390 IDF fallen soldiers who died in battles for the defense of Israel.
