Hamas: Palestinian Fighters Destroyed 60 Israeli Military Vehicles in 3 Days
TEHRAN (FNA)- The military wing of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas said its fighters have destroyed as many as 60 Israeli military vehicles over the last three days amid the regime's unrelenting aggression against the Gaza Strip.
The Spokesman for the Al-Qassam Brigades, Abu Ubaida provided the information on Monday, saying the targeted vehicles included at least 10 armored personnel carriers, presstv reported.
"Our fighters targeted an [Israeli] infantry force with an anti-personnel projectile on Saturday, causing significant injuries," he said, adding that resistance fighters heard the screams of the enemy soldiers who cried for help.
The spokesman, meanwhile, reported that the Al-Qassam Brigades inflicted "fatalities and injuries" on Israeli forces in "several qualitative operations", which were carried out during the same period.
According to the Al-Qassam's spokesman, "When the [Israeli] enemy is unable to tow its damaged vehicles, it resorts to bombing them from the air to erase the traces of its failure."
"The enemy may have bombed its own forces on the ground, thinking they were captured in the Rantisi Hospital operation," Abu Ubaida said, referring to an attack by Palestinian resistance fighters targeting Israeli forces at the hospital.
"A force of elite [resistance] fighters, consisting of 25 members, carried out a composite attack on the enemy forces at Rantisi Hospital, which the enemy [has] turned into a base after evacuating it of patients," he noted.
According to Palestinian media, soon after Abu Ubaida's announcement, resistance groups fired a massive volley of rockets towards Israeli targets, including in the coastal city of Tel Aviv and other areas in the center of the occupied territories, describing it as one of the largest rocket barrages against Israel since the beginning of the regime’s war on Gaza.
Following the rocket attack, sirens sounded over a wide area across the occupied territories extending from Ashdod in the South to Herzliya in the North.
Palestinian fighters have been engaged in defensive operations against Israeli forces since October 7. On that day, Israel launched an all-out war against the besieged Gaza Strip in response to an operation carried out by the territory's resistance groups. At least 13,300 Palestinians have been killed since the onset of the Israeli military aggression, including upwards of 5,600 children.
