The Israeli military had US support in rescuing four captives from Gaza in a "complex daytime operation" in Nuseirat that killed over 200 Palestinians.

A US official told Axios that the US hostages cell in Israel had "supported" the effort to rescue the captives.

Earlier on Saturday, the army said it had been "targeting terrorist infrastructure in the Nuseirat area", north of the town of Deir al-Balah in the centre of the besieged enclave.
