Routine baby food purchased by the Palestinian government and some donated by UNICEF has begun entering the Gaza Strip through the Rafah crossing with Egypt, the health ministry in Ramallah said today in a statement on Telegram.

The Israel Defense Forces said today it killed Adil Mismah, a top commander in Deir al-Balah, as well as targets in Shejaiya in Gaza city.

The IDF conducted a “targeted raid on the terrorist organizations’ command and control center and located large quantities of weapons used by the terrorist organizations in the area of a mosque,” it said in a statement.

An Israeli aircraft also struck a militant launching rockets in Khan Younis, the IDF said, adding it separately attacked a unit launching mortar shells.

IDF is preparing for a year of war in Gaza

In a New Year’s Eve address, the top spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces warned that the war in Gaza would require “prolonged fighting” and “warfare throughout this year.”

Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said: “We are wisely planning the management of the forces operating in the field, looking at the reserve system, the economy, refreshing forces, and continuing the combat training processes in the IDF.”

He also gave details of recent operations against Palestinian militants in the strip, and said that some reservists would return to their families this week.

He said this would “significantly ease the burden on the economy and allow them to gather strength for the upcoming activities in the next year, as the fighting will continue and they will still be required.”
