Israeli forces kill over 400 Hamas fighters in Gaza Strip

Gaza Strip, Oct 8 (UNI) The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have eliminated more than 400 Hamas fighters in the Gaza Strip and captured dozens of militants since the escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, IDF spokesman Daniel Hagari told a briefing on Sunday.

“We’ve killed more than 400 terrorists inside Gaza, and we have dozens more in captivity,” Hagari was quoted as saying by the i24 broadcaster.

Israel was hit by an unprecedented rocket attack from the Gaza Strip on Saturday morning. The Israeli army said Hamas fired more than 3,000 rockets, adding that dozens of Hamas troops infiltrated border areas in southern Israel. The Israeli military has since sent troops to the southern territories to reconquer them from the Palestinian forces and started conducting strikes at Hamas’ positions in Gaza.
