The IDF says it has completed an operation in a central Gaza neighborhood, where troops located tunnel shafts, booby-trapped homes and weapons.

Troops of the 646th Reserve Paratroopers Brigade and elite Yahalom combat engineering unit were operating in the neighborhood over the past week, in an area dubbed by the IDF “the towers neighborhood” after its high-rise buildings.

“The buildings of the neighborhood were used as anti-tank missile and machine gun fire positions,” the IDF says.

The IDF says troops also found a warehouse and chemical lab used to manufacture weapons.

Combat engineers destroyed the Hamas infrastructure, including tunnels in the area.
