IDF troops managed to find a cache of weapons, ammunition, and explosives in a kindergarten in Gaza’s Beit Hanoun, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit announced Saturday night as the ongoing war with Hamas continues.
The discovery was made by the 551st Brigade, a group of reservist commandos and paratroopers who had been carrying out operations against Hamas in the area.
Striking Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip
The 551st Brigade has been operating in the area for the past two weeks as part of Operation Swords of Iron, and has been working alongside air, engineering, and armored forces to eliminate Hamas terrorists and find weapons.
As part of their recent actions, the soldiers were able to find and destroy dozens of Hamas tunnel openings and secure locations where Hamas had stashed weapons, maps, and intelligence files.
A kindergarten in southern Israel was evacuated Thursday morning after a teacher spotted a suspicious object in the playground that was later found to be an explosive device, apparently flown into Israel from the nearby Gaza Strip, officials said.
Sappers were called to the scene to remove the device from the kindergarten in the Eshkol region, a local government spokesperson said.
“The object was collected by security officers and handled by them,” the Eshkol spokesperson said.
