This week, the IDF has warned that Hamas is strengthening its forces. This news comes at the same time as Arutz Sheva reports on IDF operations inside the Gaza border:
According to a report Thursday night by Ma’an, IDF heavy equipment was spotted just over the border with Gaza.
Among the IDF assets reportedly operating in the area are D-9 combat bulldozers.
At 5:54 warning sirens were heard in towns surrounding the Gaza Strip. However, the IDF claimed that no rocket fire had been detected, and that the sirens had likely been sounded in response to light arms fire inside Gaza.
The operation comes just hours after a senior IDF official warned that the Hamas terror organization was growing in strength.
