Arrested Hamas terrorists.

The IDF (Israel defense Forces) reported on yet another example its forces uncovered of the Hamas Terrorist organization using civilian areas, including a school, for terror purposes. Its forces also captured about 60 terrorists who hid in the school.

This came in an operation carried out by IDF paratroopers last week while fighting in western Khan Yunis. The paratroopers also raided terrorist targets and eliminated many terrorists, both at close range and with accurate sniper fire.


The fighters raided a building where they found many weapons, including Kalashnikovs, warheads, grenades, RPGs and ammunition.

The building is adjacent to a UN school which was used as a humanitarian shelter for local residents. The terrorists used a hole in the school’s wall that connected to the adjacent building from which they took weapons and launched attacks against Israeli forces.

In another nearby building, the fighters located many weapons, ammunition, cartridges, vests and Hamas uniforms. Also, the forces raided the house of the head of the anti-tank system of the Hamas Khan Yunis brigade where they found more weapons and intelligence materials.

At the same time, the IDF’s paratrooper brigade worked to evacuate the civilian population from the combat area for their safety.

During the operation, the 60 terrorists who were arrested were found when, after hiding in the school, they took advantage of the humanitarian evacuation efforts to try and escape.
