The IDF announced that troops raided the offices of many senior Hamas officials, including Chief Yahya Sinwar.
“Commander of Division 98: “We are fighting in a simultaneous maneuver – fighting above and below ground at the same time.”; The forces continue fighting in the area and disbanding the Hamas battalions from the Khan Yunis Brigade”

The IDF website stated: “During the fighting in Khan Yunis, combat teams from the 98th Division raided hundreds of locations with terrorist infrastructure and Hamas posts. The infrastructure included the battalion headquarters, the Hamas terrorist organization’s training compounds, communication posts, the Khan Yunis Brigade’s command center, a military intelligence building, a significant rocket manufacturing facility, and offices of many senior officials, including Yahya Sinwar’s office.”
The IDF has come close to defeating Hamas in Khan Yunis. They’ve killed 2,700 of the Hamas terrorists out of the original 4,500.
The soldiers have also “struck 3,320 targets and 400 tunnel shafts in Khan Yunis, 150 of which it has destroyed.”
Vijeta Uniyal has been documenting the Hamas tunnel system, which has shown to be more expansive than anyone thought.
Earlier reports indicated that the senior Hamas officials are using the Israeli hostages as shields.
Unfortunately, the IDF has not located any of the hostages.
The IDF located prison cells that once housed up to 20 hostages. They found drawings from 5-year-old Emilia Aloni, a hostage released in November.
