Local media report that Israeli forces have now utilized advanced military robots and a variety of explosive devices to obliterate Hamas tunnels and eliminate terrorists.
According to the Israeli news outlet Walla News, extensive tunnel-clearing operations have begun in areas of the Gaza Strip currently under Israeli control.
According to the report, Israeli forces have reportedly demolished one hundred tunnels since the commencement of the ground operation, excluding those destroyed by airstrikes.
Additionally, the IDF stated that it had encircled Gaza City and was engaged in fierce combat with Hamas militants deep within the city’s core.
The Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza reports that over 9,000 individuals have lost their lives since the conflict began on October 7.
After thousands of its fighters stormed into Israel and brutally murdered 1,400 people, the overwhelming majority of whom were civilians, Israel declared war on the terrorist organization.
The humanitarian crisis and escalating death toll in Gaza have prompted calls for a cessation of hostilities, which has been echoed by US President Joe Biden.
