The Israeli army said Thursday its troops had taken “operational control” of Gaza port, a key piece of infrastructure in the Palestinian territory where Israel is waging war with Hamas militants.

“In the past few days, in a joint operation, soldiers… took operational control of the Gaza harbour, which was controlled by the Hamas terrorist organisation,” the Israeli army said in a statement. “All buildings in the harbour area were cleared.”
