Israel’s air force says it has struck several Hamas compounds, including one belonging to the head of intelligence, across the Gaza Strip as its retaliatory strikes against the militant group are well underway.
Drone footage, taken over the last 24 hours and released by the military branch, shows a group of Hamas fighters being attacked from the sky as they try to cross into Israeli territory.
At least seven armed men can be seen moving, before being consumed by a fireball caused by an Israeli missile.
The footage also shows a drone attack on a car that is driving at high speeds through the Gaza Strip, home to 2.3 million Palestinians.
It comes as the air force said it hit 150 targets so far, including banks, weapons factories and the homes and compounds of key Hamas leaders.

The military branch announced in a post to X, formerly Twitter, early on Sunday morning that it had ordered a missile strike on a compound belonging to Hamas’ head of intelligence, along with a video of a purported attack.
It said: ‘A short while ago, IAF fighter jets struck a compound belonging to the head of the intelligence department in the Hamas terrorist organization.
‘The IAF is currently continuing to strike terror targets in the Gaza Strip.’
