IDF Thwarts Major Hamas Sea-Borne Infiltration Attempt

Tuesday, 24 October 2023 02:30 PM EDT

Several terrorists were killed off Israel's southern coast after attempting to infiltrate the Jewish state from the Gaza Strip, the Israel Defense Forces said Tuesday night.

"Sea Corps soldiers attacked a terror cell that tried to infiltrate into Israeli territory by sea in the Zikim area," the IDF confirmed, adding jets struck the structure in Gaza from where the terrorists left.

According to Israel's Channel 12, at least four terrorists were killed.

Residents of Zikim and Karmia were ordered to lock themselves in their homes, the broadcaster said.

The IDF announced Monday five senior Hamas commanders had been killed in recent days, as the military continues to strike thousands of Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip.

On Oct. 14, the IDF eliminated Murad Abu Murad, head of Hamas's aerial array in the Gaza Strip. The array played a significant role in the terrorist group's Oct. 7 massacre of western Negev communities, according to the military.

The four other aerial array commanders killed were identified by the IDF as Moethe Abdel Rahman, responsible for training; Othman Hamdan, commander of air defenses in the Tel al-Hawa neighborhood; Muhammad Alrifi, responsible for the unit's supplies in Gaza City; and Ghassan Shakfouh, responsible for the unit's training in northern Gaza.

According to the IDF over 400 terrorist targets had been hit in the past 24 hours, including on Monday night the elimination of the deputy commanders of Hamas's Nuseirat, Shati and Furqan battalions.

"Dozens" of Hamas gunmen preparing to fire rockets and carry out terrorist attacks were also killed, according to the military.

IDF fighter jets also struck terrorist infrastructure in the neighborhoods of Shuja'iyya, Shati, Jabalia, Daraj Tuffah, and Zaytun, including a tunnel shaft that gave terrorists access to the coastline, command centers and staging grounds located in mosques.
