One month has passed today in the Israel-Hamas war and Hamas seems to be in ruins. In retaliation to the Hamas attack on October 7, the Israeli army has so far destroyed many Hamas targets.
Meanwhile, Israeli Defense Forces said they had hit about 450 Hamas targets in a wide-ranging operation in the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours. This includes tunnels, terrorist hideouts, military facilities, observation posts, and anti-tank missiles.
450 targets attacked in 24 hours
The IDF also announced the capture of a Hamas military compound inside Gaza, which contained observation posts, training facilities for Hamas operatives, and underground tunnels. “Over the past day, IDF warplanes struck more than 450 Hamas targets, including tunnels, terrorists, military compounds, observation posts, anti-tank missile launch posts and more,” the IDF said in a statement on Monday.
Continuous attacks on Hamas targets
“Overnight, IDF ground troops took control of a Hamas military compound in the Gaza Strip. The compound contains observation posts, training areas for Hamas operatives, and underground terror tunnels,” the statement said. Israeli forces have been carrying out significant strikes in the area, both above and below ground, targeting Hamas infrastructure and leadership. Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, an army spokesman, stressed the intensity of the operation in response to the previous Hamas attack.
More than 9700 people have died so far
The attacks hit civilian areas, including residential areas, hospitals, refugee camps and schools, resulting in the loss of more than 9,700 lives, the Palestinian Health Ministry was quoted as saying.
Additionally, telecommunications services experienced disruption, with Paltel, a telecommunications company, announcing a complete disruption of its services due to Israel once again cutting off communication lines. Internet monitoring organization NetBlocks has confirmed that internet access is gradually being restored in Gaza after an almost complete blackout on Sunday.
4800 children were included in those who died
Palestinian Health Minister Mai al-Kaila was quoted in Ramallah as saying that more than 9,700 people have been killed in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza since October 7. Al-Kaila said this figure included 4,800 children. The latest figures come as US special envoy David Satterfield said on Saturday that between 800,000 and one million people have fled from the north of the Gaza Strip to the south, deepening the humanitarian crisis.
