In a brief but critical statement, spokesman for Al-Qassam Brigades, Abu Obeida, announced a list of Israel’s latest losses in Gaza. This comes at a time when fierce battles are reported on all fronts. 

In the northern Gaza front in particular, Palestinian Resistance groups are recovering, launching major attacks at invading Israeli forces. The current fight in the south is concentrated mostly in Khan Yunis.

Meanwhile, the Israeli war on the Palestinian Refugees Agency, UNRWA, continues, with the freezing of the group’s accounts by the Israeli Bank Leumi. 

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 27,365 Palestinians have been killed, and 66,630 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7. Palestinian and international estimates say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.
