IDF troops have destroyed the headquarters of the Islamist group Hamas in the southern Gaza Strip, according to an Israeli military statement.
On Sunday, IDF forces also entered the offices of the Hamas Islamic Jihad in Gaza City, the statement said.
“Following the establishment of an area of resistance, IDF troops and police officers destroyed the facilities of Hamas, which is responsible for the commission of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and terrorism,” the statement added.
On March 15, Israeli forces raided the Hamas offices in Khan Younis in southern Gaza City after the group announced that it would open an office in the West Bank.
The raid resulted in the destruction of three Hamas weapons factories, according a statement by the military.
The weapons were later used to fire a rocket at Israel.
On February 27, Israel’s army announced that two Palestinians were killed and three wounded in clashes with IDF troops in Gaza.
The military said that an Israeli drone had shot down an ISIS fighter, killing the ISIS commander.
The IDF said in a statement that the attack was “unprovoked” and that the two dead were members of Hamas.
