Meanwhile, Hamas announced the death of Yagev Buchshtab, 34, who was abducted from Kibbutz Nirim on Oct. 7 along with his wife. Rimon Kirsht Buchshtab, 36, was released on Nov. 28 as part of a deal brokered by Qatar and the United States.

The terrorist group said on its Telegram channel that he died “as a result of a lack of medicine and food.”

Since March 18, the IDF has been mounting a massive military operation in an attempt to root out a resurgent Hamas presence at the Shifa compound, which Israeli forces first entered in mid-November. Hundreds of terrorists have been killed and arrested during the targeted raids.

The IDF has provided extensive evidence that Hamas uses Shifa and other hospitals in the Gaza Strip for its terrorist activities, which are mostly conducted in a massive tunnel system underneath the complexes.

Furthermore, over the past day, Israeli Air Force fighter jets struck 65 targets in northern and central Gaza, including a tunnel used to carry out attacks, “military” compounds where armed terrorists operated and additional “military infrastructure.

Moreover, in central Gaza troops killed several terrorists over the past day and conducted a targeted raid on a drone-manufacturing laboratory, killing terrorists outside the compound.
