Northern arena:

Last night, IDF aircraft and tanks attacked a number of Syrian army military infrastructures and military positions in Syrian territory. In addition, Air Force aircraft and IDF tanks attacked Hezbollah military infrastructures and a launching position in Kafar Kila, south Lebanon.

In the early afternoon hours, sirens sounded in Rosh Hanikra in the north-western Galilee due to rockets launched from south Lebanon that landed in open areas. In retaliation, IDF artillery fired on the area of Labbouneh in Southern Lebanon. Furthermore, Rockets were fired in the direction of an IDF post in the Malkia region in the north-eastern Galilee.

At 14:20, 4 rockets launched from south Lebanon toward the community of Yiftach, fell in open areas. An hour later, rockets that were fired toward Reches Ramim in the Upper Galilee, landed in the Gome junction area. In all of today’s incidents, no injuries were reported.

Soon after, IDF forces attacked a Hezbollah terrorist cell in Lebanese territory. In addition, an IDF fighter jet attacked a Hezbollah military structure and infrastructure.

Since this morning, (20:00) Hezbollah has accepted responsibility for 6 attacks against Israeli outposts on the Lebanese border.

This morning, Hezbollah announced the deaths of another 2 combatants.

South/ Gaza:

Golani’s Brigade Combat Team (BCT) is waging an attack on Hamas terrorists in the Kasbah of Shuja’iyya. The attack is an advanced step in the effort to rid the neighborhood of Hamas terrorists and negate the organization’s capabilities. The Kasbah is a dense and complex space to maneuver in, the Hamas terrorists operate out of civilian infrastructures, and the neighborhood is saturated with underground terror tunnels.

Golani troops engaged in combat with terrorists during the operation, who fired at them and threw explosive devices at them from a residential building that also housed subterranean terror tunnels, injuring IDF soldiers. During the battle, commanders and soldiers fell into action while assisting and rescuing injured troops.

Furthermore, in the vicinity of Shuja’iyya, an IDF unit detected a terrorist group that was planning to fire rockets into Israel. An IAF aircraft was directed by the troops to target the terrorist cell and rocket launcher. With over 250 terror targets hit in the last day, IDF ground, air, and naval units are still carrying out targeted attacks on infrastructure and terror targets throughout the Gaza Strip.

Following an attack by terrorists from within a Khan Yunis school, the IDF launched a targeted operation against the terrorists. The terrorist cell, occupying the school building, engaged the IDF forces, firing their weapons and anti-tank rockets at them from within the school. During the battle, the terrorists were killed. Consequently, the soldiers found an underground fighting facility and long-range missiles near the school.

Since the opening of the Humanitarian Zone for Gazan civilians on Oct. 18, Gaza terrorists launched 116 rockets from the designated humanitarian zone toward Israeli cities.

These events further exemplify the malevolent manner in which Hamas uses civilians as human shields.

Several reports state that the IDF has started pumping seawater into Hamas’s underground tunnel system in Gaza, a move aimed at destroying the subterranean network of passages and hideaways and driving its operatives above ground.

 Yemen/Red Sea:

US sources report that the Houthis in Yemen fired two missiles at the Marshall Islands-flagged oil tanker Ardmore Encounter this morning in the Bab al-Mandab Strait. The missiles missed and did not strike the ship.

The report further states that a UAV launched in the region was intercepted by an American destroyer.

A Houthi officer in a tweet suggests that vessels in the Red Sea should not sail towards “Occupied Palestine.”

Political:

The UK and US have announced new sanctions on the leaders and financiers of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). Coordinated sanctions aim to isolate Hamas through freezing assets and imposing travel bans. The two countries are committed to disrupting acts of terror and ensuring “Hamas has no future in Gaza.”

White House spokesman John Kirby noted that the first hostage release agreement included Red Cross visits to Israelis still held captive, but that has yet to occur, leaving many questions unanswered because it looks like Hamas is trying to hide something.

The motion to call for a humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza was approved in the UN General Assembly: 153 countries supported, 10 opposed and 23 abstained. General Assembly resolutions are not legally binding. The resolution makes no mention of Hamas, and the assembly defeated two proposed amendments mentioning the militant group. One, proposed by the United States, would have added a paragraph stating that the assembly “unequivocally rejects and condemns the heinous terrorist attacks by Hamas.” The other, proposed by Austria, would have added a call for the immediate release of hostages still held by Hamas.
