The military branch of the Palestinian resistance group Hamas claims that since the commencement of Israel’s aggressive war against the besieged Gaza Strip, more than 160 Israeli military vehicles, including tanks and armored vehicles, have been either completely or partially destroyed.
According to Abu Ubaida, the spokesperson for the al-Qassam Brigades, in the past 48 hours alone, Palestinian resistance fighters have managed to destroy 25 Israeli military vehicles.
He emphasized that the occupying regime will face a high cost for its ground aggression in the blockaded territory, asserting that Gaza will not experience a moment of calm, and the price for the incursion will be substantial.
“Our resistance fighters come out from under the ground, [and also fight] above the ground and from under the rubble, and destroy its (Israel’s) armored vehicles and tanks.”Abu Ubaida, Spokesperson for the al-Qassam Brigades
Abu Ubaida underscored that Palestinian fighters are subjecting Israeli tanks to intense resistance, compelling them to withdraw.
The spokesperson for the al-Qassam Brigades highlighted that the only accomplishment of the Zionist regime in its Gaza war is the tragic killing of women and children, occurring in full view of the global community.
Abu Ubaida concluded by emphasizing that the significant sacrifices made by Palestinian fighters and the people are a precursor to ultimate victory.
In a prior statement in November, the al-Qassam spokesperson had conveyed a similar message, stating that the brigades had successfully destroyed around two dozen Israeli combat vehicles in their engagements with Israeli forces.
“We’ve successfully destroyed 24 enemy vehicles, including tanks and other military equipment over the past 48 hours,” Abu Obaida said.
He added, “Al-Qassam Brigades’ snipers effectively engage soldiers who have taken shelter in residential buildings or those attempting to expose themselves from their fortified positions.”
The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, praised the resilience of Palestinian and Lebanese fighters confronting Israeli aggression in Gaza and Lebanon. Nasrallah emphasized that, ultimately, Tel Aviv will be compelled to withdraw, marking another humiliation for the Israeli army. He made these comments on a Saturday.
“Time is not in favor of the [Israeli] enemy and all factors, including the captives file, will build up pressure on it. We must continue the pressure, and those placing the main burden are the people of Gaza.
“The enemy is confused and this is reflected in the contradictory statements being made by [Israeli prime minister Benjamin] Netanyahu.”Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah
In the end, the Israelis will face a prolonged defeat, similar to the enduring setbacks the Americans encountered in Afghanistan and previously in Vietnam. The level of destruction inflicted upon the targeted regions will be substantial, leading to a global realization of the brutality involved.
This heightened level of awareness is already evident in the increasing numbers of people persistently participating in protests worldwide compared from weeks before.
