Israeli troops continue battling militants within Gaza’s main hospital in what the IDF is calling one of the most direct engagements with senior Hamas fighters so far. Military spokesman Daniel Hagari says that though this operation has been successful so far, “it’s not over yet.”

Six days into the raid, officials say 170 militants have been killed and nearly 500 others detained. Hagari added that troops are providing food, water, and access to healthcare for patients. Hamas denies any presence within the facility.
