Israeli army says it destroyed tunnels in Al-Shifa Hospital before ceasefire
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it has destroyed tunnels and mines discovered in the area of the Al-Shifa Hospital before the ceasefire agreement in the Gaza Strip came into force.
“Earlier this morning, IDF troops destroyed the terror tunnel that was revealed in the area of the Shifa Hospital,” the army press office said in a statement.
“Over the last day and night, IDF troops on the ground, in the air, and at sea continued to strike terror targets, operate in different areas to locate suspicious structures and engage with terrorists,” the military added. “In addition, the forces struck a terror tunnel route, which was identified over the past few days,” the press office added.
Earlier, IDF had launched air strikes on a number of military facilities of Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement, the IDF press service reports.
“IDF fighter jets struck Hezbollah terror targets in Lebanon, including launch pads from which launches were carried out toward Israel over the past few days, and several military sites where Hezbollah terrorists were operating,” the IDF press service said in a brief statement.
This is a developing story that HO1 will continue to monitor.
