The IDF continues to advance in the Sajayia neighborhood of Gaza, a Hamas stronghold. Sajayia is a Hamas stronghold which the IDF has described as a Hamas fotress.

The neighborhood is used for storing and launching rockets, and also contains dozens of terror tunnels, and is full of armed Hamas terrorists, who use the population as human shields for their terror attacks.

6 tunnels were found on Sunday, including a tunnel that was 1.2 kilometers (.75 miles) long. It was full of explosives, and access to it was via a house in Gaza. It exited into Israel, and was going to be used for a mega-terror attack.

In heavy battles overnight in the Sajayia neighborhood, the IDF killed 10 terrorists in gun battles.

Three soldiers were injured in the fighting.

20 terrorists were arrested, and number of them have been brought to interrogation.

More than a dozen rockets were launched at Israel overnight. Iron Dome intercepted 2 of them targeting Be’er Sheva.

A total of 1790 rockets have been fired at Israel since the operation began.
