Al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas armed units) spokesman Abu Obaida confirmed that the Palestinian resistance fighters have completely or partially destroyed 20 Zionist military vehicles within 48 hours.
Abu Obaida said in a recorded speech aired by Al-Jazeera TV on Monday evening that “there was an effort last week by our Qatari mediator brothers to secure the release of enemy detainees, including women and children, in exchange for the release of 200 Palestinian children and 75 Palestinian women, who represent the total number of women and child prisoners held by the enemy as of November 11.”
“The truce to release a number of detainees in Gaza includes a ceasefire and allowing aid to enter the Strip, but the enemy is procrastinating,” he said.
He added, “ 38 days after the beginning of the Battle of Al-Aqsa Flood, our fighters continue to confront the enemy’s Nazi forces and their vehicles, which are infiltrating Gaza City and Beit Hanoun from several directions.”
“Our fighters are conducting surveillance operations and approaching enemy vehicles and the fortified positions of their soldiers. They maneuver in all areas of incursion, directing strikes to blow up tanks and armored vehicles, attacking enemy soldiers’ fortification points in some buildings, and bombarding their gatherings with mortar shells and guided missiles, inflicting casualties and fatalities among the enemy ranks.”
“The invading occupation forces will remain under the strikes of the fighters at every step they take. The penetration of vehicles under the impact of destruction and indiscriminate bombing, as well as the prolongation of the war, will incur more losses for the enemy, and the price will be steep by the will and strength of Allah,” Abu Obaida said in the statement.
He added: “We remind those who are delusional that Yitzhak Shamir once tried and vowed against our resistance, as did Rabin, who wished to wake up to find Gaza swallowed by the sea. Back then, our Brigades were just a few dozen fighters with light and individual weapons.”
Abu Obaida continued: “Similarly, Sharon, promised you to end the Intifada within 100 days. All of these individuals have gone to the dustbins of history with a record filled with killing innocents. Our resistance remained, grew, and became greater. You, the killers, will not be luckier than them and will only achieve disappointment and downfall, by the will of Allah Almighty.”
He affirmed that “their absolute trust in the victory of Allah, the justice of our fight, and the sanctity of our battle, which is the mother of all battles, does not exempt every individual and group in our great nation from their duty towards Palestine and its cause. It is a trust in the necks of all Arabs, Muslims, and free people in the world.”
“The hysteria that the occupation and its leaders are living in, fearing the movement of the resistance forces in our nation and its free people and its wide masses, is proof that this is the terrifying nightmare for the enemy. Let the enemy find you [our nation] where he fears,” he said.
He addressed the people of the whole world saying, “To all the free people of the world, we are watching your actions and see their great impact and how they cause confusion for the aggressing Zionists.”
Abu Obaida warned the enemy and all those concerned with the affairs of prisoners and detainees that the continuation of aerial and ground aggression undoubtedly endangers the lives of these prisoners every hour. “Those forewarned have no excuse.”
The spokesman Abu Obaida concluded his statement by saying, “to our people, our martyrs who ascend every hour in Gaza will be immortalized in history as the greatest martyrs in the holiest of battles and under the purest banners fought in this time. Blessed are our people and our fighters for this immense honor. Shame and disgrace shall befall every onlooker to our people’s sufferings. Nothing will prevail in the kingdom of Allah except what Allah wills, and the faith of our people and their messages from beneath the rubble are the greatest testament to their greatness, pride, and their deserved honor in defending the Prophet’s path [Al-Aqsa] and their bond in the blessed holy land.”
