Israeli forces have dismantled the Hamas brigade in Gaza's southern Khan Younis as part of an almost four-month-old war in which 10,000 Palestinian fighters have been killed and the same number wounded, Defence Minister Yoav Gallant said on Thursday.

"We are achieving our missions in Khan Younis, and we will also reach Rafah and eliminate terror elements that threaten us," he said in a statement, referring to a city on Gaza's border with Egypt that has been packed with displaced civilians.
