The IDF has killed 108 terrorists since the start of the air campaign in Gaza last week, the IDF said on Wednesday. It killed 30 overnight, according to a spokesperson.

Medical officials in Gaza say at least 138 people have been killed since last Wednesday, saying that 34 of them were children.

The Israel Air Force struck some 100 terror targets overnight Wednesday, including a floor of a Gaza media building the IDF said was being used by Hamas as its intelligence headquarters.

A central Hamas command post, a police station and a hideout for senior terrorists in southern Gaza were all hit in the air strikes. A Hamas aerial defense operated was targeted in an air strike, as was a terrorist seen firing a long-range rocket at Jerusalem on Tuesday, the IDF said.

The Navy shelled several rocket launching areas, a Hamas post and a building used to coordinate Hamas activities. Meanwhile, the IAF continued hitting underground rocket launchers, and struck tunnels used to transfer fuel to Gaza, which is then used for Hamas terror activities.
