By Anna Ahronheim November 13, 2018
The IDF has reinforced it’s Armored Corps and infantry to the Gaza Strip vicinity to beef up troops and prevent possible infiltrations into Israel border communities as close to 460 rockets were fired from the coastal enclave.
"We are in the midst of a wide-scale process of accumulating more infantry, armored and other forces to the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip, and we are mobilizing reserves for Iron Dome operations and the Home Front Command," IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis said, adding that the evacuation of communities along the Gaza border is not yet necessary.
According to reports “operational decisions were made” by policymakers, and the IDF was given the green light Monday night to continue striking targets in the Gaza Strip.
In a statement the military said it has struck over 150 Hamas and Islamic Jihad targets across the Strip, including an attack tunnel and four military compounds in Gaza City, Beit Hanun, Jabaliya and Khan Yunis, as well as a Hamas launch site in Khan Yunis.
The IDF also confirmed destroying the al-Aqsa TV station affiliated with Hamas in Gaza City, as well as the former al-Amal hotel that the IDF said Hamas used as an internal security office.
A senior Air Force officer told reporters that the Air Force carried out “significant” strikes on Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza.
