The Israeli military said on Tuesday that it had taken over several key buildings belonging to the Islamist group Hamas in the Gaza Strip, as part of its ongoing offensive against the militants.
The buildings included “the headquarters of the Hamas legislative assembly and government, the headquarters of the Hamas Police and an engineering faculty used for the production and development of weapons,” according to a military spokesperson.
The spokesperson said that these buildings were seized “in recent days” by the combined forces of the Seventh Brigade.

The military also said that the Golani Brigade had secured the governor’s residence, which was used by Hamas as a facility for its military and police offices, as well as its military intelligence offices and various outposts.

According to Reuters, The military claimed that some of these buildings were used as training sites for the attack that Hamas launched against Israel on October 7, which killed 1,200 Israelis and captured more than 240 hostages, who were taken to Gaza.

The Israeli offensive, which began with airstrikes and naval bombardment, and later escalated to a ground invasion, has killed more than 11,180 Palestinians, wounded 28,200, left 3,000 missing and displaced more than 1.5 million in Gaza, where 46 Israeli soldiers have also died.

Israel says it is targeting Hamas’s rocket launchers, tunnels and command centers, but has also hit civilian infrastructure, such as hospitals, schools and power plants. The United Nations and several countries have called for an immediate ceasefire, but the prospects of a diplomatic solution remain bleak.
