Israeli soldiers killed more than 30 Hamas terrorists in the Zeitoun area of Gaza City during the past day, the Israel Defense Forces said on Monday morning.

The terrorists were eliminated as Israel’s 401st Armored Brigade consolidated its control over the area.

During one of the operations in Zeitoun, ground forces directed an airstrike on a sniper perched on a post in a compound adjacent to the soldiers, killing him.

Meanwhile, in Khan Yunis, soldiers killed several terrorists by tank and sniper fire. In addition, ground forces directed an airstrike on a compound where two Hamas terrorists were hiding. Following the strike, secondary explosions were detected, indicating the two were carrying numerous weapons.

Troops also carried out a targeted raid on Hamas infrastructure in Khan Yunis, seizing grenades, ammunition, military equipment and weapons parts.

In other areas of Khan Yunis, several Hamas terrorists were killed in close quarter combat while another terrorist armed with an RPG spotted near troops and killed in an airstrike.

Israeli forces also eliminated a further 10 Hamas terrorists in engagements in central Gaza.
