The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) conducted precision strikes against the Hamas terrorist organization inside the Gazan city of Rafah on Monday night.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Office said that the War Cabinet backed the operation in Rafah.

“The War Cabinet unanimously decided that Israel continues the operation in Rafah to exert military pressure on Hamas in order to promote the release of our hostages and the other goals of the war,” the statement read.

The operation took place after Hamas accepted the terms of an imaginary ceasefire agreement on Monday that Israel never agreed to.

Video circulated of IDF soldiers praying before the offensive began:

Later reports indicated that Israeli forces had been able to make headway in Rafah.

“Things in the City of Rafah and the remainder of Southern Gaza have been Strangely Quiet over the last 2 Hours; the last we had heard the Israel Defense Force had either just Captured or was about to Captured the Rafah Border Checkpoint between Egypt and Gaza, but since then there has been pretty much nothing from Palestinian or Israeli Sources,” one such report read.
