The Israeli army withdrew its troops from the Khan Yunis region in the southern Gaza Strip after months of fighting, reports the Times of Israel. This coincides with preparations for the next round of ceasefire negotiations to begin in Cairo on Sunday. Sunday marks six months since the attack on Israel by the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.

Only one unit remains in the Khan Yunis area, the Nachal brigade, added the Times of Israel portal.

This brigade will guard the so-called the Necarim Corridor, which crosses the Gaza Strip in the southern part and runs from the city of Beeri in Israel to the sea coast of the Gaza Strip. In the Israeli army, a brigade usually consists of about 1,000 soldiers.
