The captured terrorists are being questioned about Hamas operations.

As day 17 of Operation Protective Edge begins the IDF announced that it had captured and detained 150 Hamas terrorists during the night in and around Khan Younis and Rafiah. The terrorists found themselves surrounded by IDF forces and surrendered. They are now undergoing questioning by Israeli intelligence officers and are expected to reveal extensive and vital information about Hamas operations.

Meanwhile IDF Spokesman Brigadier General Moti Almoz said on Twitter, "The operation to destroy the tunnels requires a few more days. We are increasing the pressure and working intensively and we will continue to do so in the coming days."

Yesterday the IDF attacked some 100 targets in the Gaza strip including loaded missile launchers, military buildings and the tunnels.
