Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing Hamas, stated that “the resistance targeted a fortified house where a number of Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) were holed up with an anti-personnel missile and machine guns east of the city of Khan Yunis south of the Gaza Strip.
The statement, published on Al-Qassam’s official Telegram channel, added that the resistance fighters successfully sniped 4 Zionist soldiers east of Khan Yunis with confirmed injuries reported among IOF soldiers.
An IOF Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) and a "Merkava" tank were also targeted with “Yassine-105” rockets east of Khan Yunis.
Al-Qassam further added that 12 IOF vehicles have been targeted in Beit Lahia North of Gaza.
The City of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza is currently witnessing heavy clashes between Hamas and the IOF, as part of a new stage of the ground operation led by the Israeli Occupation against Gaza.
The Occupation Government’s spokesperson claimed earlier the besieging of Khan Yunis City as part of the IOF's latest efforts to dismantle Hamas.
