IDF withdraws 98th Division from Gaza in major scaledown

The 98th Division, which has been stationed in the southern Gaza Strip in recent months, particularly in the Khan Younis area, has rotated out of the territory, the IDF said on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the 7th Armored Brigade began its withdrawal from the Gaza Strip Saturday night, after engaging in combat in the Palestinian enclave since the start of ground operations at the end of October.
For the past three months, the 7th Armored Brigade operated in Khan Younis under the 98th Division, and before that, it was stationed in northern and central Gaza under the 36th Division.
This marks a further reduction of IDF forces in Gaza. Currently, the Nahal Brigade, which holds Road 749 bisecting the enclave, remains the only unit still operating there. (Yoav Zitun)
