Israeli troops engaged in heavy fighting with Hamas operatives in the Gaza Strip throughout Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning while striving to minimize the damage done to civilians and civilian infrastructure in the over-crowded southern part of the coastal enclave.

On Wednesday morning, the Israel Defense forces said that while troops engaged in fierce battles with Hamas on the ground, the air force had carried out strikes against more than 250 targets over the last day.

The 7th Armored Brigade directed airstrikes at two rocket launchers used to lob barrages at central Israel on Tuesday, the IDF said in a statement, and added that several Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad operatives and their infrastructure were hit during air force strikes.
