The hideout apartment was next to a kindergarten and was used by terror operatives for offensive cyber activity against Israeli targets.
On Thursday, Israeli Air Force (IAF) fighter jets continued to decimate Hamas’ infrastructure and attacked dozens of underground terrorist targets as part of the IDF’s operation to attack Hamas’ so-called Metro underground city throughout the Strip.
In addition, the IAF bombed a command center at the home of the commander of the North Khan Yunis Battalion, Ali Abu Zarqa, weapons production sites, and a number of underground launching positions.
The IDF further announced that it neutralized three Hamas operatives located in an operational hideout apartment belonging to the Hamas cyber unit.
The hideout apartment was used by the terror operatives for offensive cyber activity against Israeli targets.
“The apartment was located adjacent to a kindergarten, proving once again that the Hamas terror organization deliberately endangers civilians by placing its military infrastructure in the heart of densely populated civilian areas,” the IDF noted.
The IAF also bombed a weapons depot located at the home of Hamas’ former minister of justice.
Estimates in Israel say that the operation is nearing a conclusion, possibly by the weekend.
Speaking about the operation Wednesday evening, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that “this is the natural right of Israel. I am determined to continue this operation until its objective is achieved: to restore quiet and security to you, citizens of Israel.”
