New disturbing wartime footage has just been released by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) on Sunday, November 12. The latest video reportedly showed a Gazan kindergarten filled with countless weapons and explosives.
The footage captured by the IDF showed an abandoned room, which appeared to have been used as a classroom of sorts. A soldier explained that there were two large explosive charge blocks and two sacks full of ammunition near the bed and closet in the footage.
He further estimated that each bag weighed about 15-20 kilograms.
IDF troops found weapons, ammunition and explosive devices inside a Gazan kindergarten while operating in northern Gaza.

The soldiers then moved these weapons to another building where they found an explosive charge along with two additional explosive charge blocks. Upon inspection, it was revealed that these belonged to the 551 Brigade, who had been operating in northern Gaza for the past two weeks in light of Operation Swords of Iron.
This operation has been ongoing since October 7th when Hamas launched its attack and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused to authorize a ceasefire until all hostages held by Hamas are released.

Saturday saw more violence and carnage as news broke out about the reported death of Hamas commander Ahmed Siam due to an Israeli airstrike. According to reports, Siam had allegedly held around 1,000 Gazans hostage in one hospital alone before his demise occurred at the hands of Israeli forces.
National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan from America noted during an interview with ABC News on Sunday that nine American citizens were still unaccounted for amidst this chaos going on in Gaza.
This is a developing story.
