As dawn broke today, the neighborhood was witness to over 50 clashes with terrorist groups. Nearly 200 terrorists were killed, many by tank fire or snipers. The forces moved into the neighborhood from various directions, including from the Israeli border.
Unlike what transpired in other neighborhoods and towns in the northern Gaza Strip that the IDF took control of, many of the Hamas forces chose to stay.
