The IDF operation continued overnight with large infantry, tank, engineering, artillery and intelligence forces operating throughout the Gaza Strip, along with the assistance of the Israel Air Force and the Israel Navy.
During exchanges of fire overnight (Jan. 3), dozens of armed Hamas operatives were hit by the IDF. IAF planes struck over 45 targets including tunnels, weapons storage facilities, mortar shell launching squads, and a number of mortar shell launching sites.
Israel Navy boats assisted the ground forces and attacked a number of targets including the Hamas intelligence headquarters in Gaza City, rocket launching sites, and Hamas marine force outposts.
An IDF officer and an IDF soldier were severely wounded during the night. The families of the injured officer and soldier have been notified.
In addition, 28 other soldiers were injured moderately and lightly. The soldiers received initial medical treatment at the scene and were transported to the hospital for further treatment.
The IDF will continue to operate against the Hamas terror infrastructure in the Gaza Strip according to plan in order to reduce the rocket fire on the south of Israel.

The Operation Continues: Forces Clash with Hamas Gunmen
On Wednesday (Jan. 7), the IAF, IN and Artillery Corps again provided support to the Ground Forces, Armored Corps and Engineering Corps during their operations. The forces struck squads of armed terror operatives, as they were approaching ground forces, and struck rocket launching sites used to firing at the ground forces.
In the northern Gaza Strip, in a number of instances, ground forces came under fire from armed Hamas operatives and the forces responded with direct fire. Ten soldiers were lightly injured during the gun battles.
Throughout the day, the IAF struck more than 40 additional targets. The targets include, weapons smuggling tunnels in the southern Gaza Strip, ten rocket launching sites and pads, four armed terrorist squads, a Hamas outpost, nine weapons smuggling tunnels dug from under houses, a weapons storage facility, and four burrows from which rockets are launched.
