The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) targeted the Rimal neighborhood of Gaza City with “dozens” of fighter jets on Monday, October 9, calling the area a “terror nest for Hamas.”
In a post to X, the IDF said Israeli forces attacked “many targets” in the neighborhood over the course of a few hours.
The neighborhood houses commercial businesses and the largest medical complex in Gaza, according to Al Jazeera. A building holding a telecommunications company was destroyed in a strike in the area on Monday, causing internet and telephone service outages, according to news reports.
