IDF kills 170 terrorists and captures 800 in Shifa hospital

The IDF claims to have killed more than 170 gunmen and captured 800 terror suspects during its ongoing operation against Hamas at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City.

The IDF says that during the raid on Shifa, which began early Monday and is being carried out by the Navy’s Shayetet 13 commando unit and the 401 Armored Brigade, troops located infrastructure belonging to terrorist groups and caches of weapons.

Meanwhile, over the past day, the Israeli Air Force struck some 35 locations across the Gaza Strip, including command rooms and other infrastructure belonging to terrorist groups, according to the IDF.

In central Gaza, the IDF says Nahal Brigade troops killed about 15 terrorists during “heavy fighting” the previous day.

In Al Qarara, southern Gaza, the IDF says the 7th Armored Brigade directed airstrikes against two operatives and a building used by Hamas during its ongoing operations in the area near Khan Younis.
