The Times of Israel reported that these terrorists were arrested and interrogated. Images and footage circulating in the media showed the captured men, stripped of their battle fatigues, lined up and sitting with their hands over their heads, under the watchful eye of IDF troops.

IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari confirmed these arrests, stating that the men were taken into custody in areas that are significant strongholds for Hamas.

He elaborated on the process of distinguishing between those linked to Hamas and innocent civilians, emphasizing the thoroughness of the IDF’s interrogation methods.

This large-scale surrender of Hamas fighters is unprecedented since Israel began its operations in the Palestinian enclave.

Israeli intelligence officials, like Dr. David Shimoni, explained that while many detainees might be low-level operatives, further interrogation would aim to extract crucial information about the group’s activities, including the whereabouts of hostages.

The incident has sparked various reactions. Some, like Hani Almadhoun, a Palestinian man residing in the U.S., have criticized the actions as humiliating and questioned the ethics of rounding up people from their homes.

On the other hand, Senior Hamas leader Osama Hamdan claimed that the captured individuals were unarmed civilians, not affiliated with Hamas, as reported by Arabic broadcaster Al Araby.

The northern Gaza city, particularly the Jabaliya refugee camp, has been a focal point of intense fighting. Israeli troops uncovered weapons, equipment, and intelligence documents in raids on Hamas’ general security headquarters in the area.

Israel’s actions have been scrutinized internationally, with the U.S. demanding explanations for the bombardments near the camp.

As the IDF continues its operations, the conflict has now extended to Khan Younis, the second-largest city in the Gaza enclave. The IDF’s recent successes in dismantling terrorist infrastructure in northern Gaza have led to an increased focus on the southern regions, indicating a significant shift in the conflict’s dynamics.
