by Micha Gefen

The IDF announced the Nahal Brigade has been deployed to Rafah, joining the 162nd Division which has been operating in the city in the southern Gaza Strip since earlier this month.

Nahal is now the fifth IDF brigade operating in Rafah, after the 401st, Givati, Commando, and Negev brigades.The military says it is now operating in Rafah’s Brazil and Shaboura neighborhoods, following “information on terror targets in the area.” 

The IDF said that the operation in Rafah is being carried out in an “accurate manner… while preventing harm to the civilian population as much as possible, after the civilians have evacuated the area.”

Ahead of the new push deeper into Rafah, the IDF says it carried out a wave of fighter jet strikes against Hamas targets in the area.
