Due to the destruction of an unprecedented number of Israeli military vehicles in the Gaza war, the Israeli army has resorted to another style of fighting. 

Instead of pushing hundreds of military vehicles, which represented easy targets for Palestinian Resistance fighters in the Strip, Israeli commanders have shifted their strategy. They are resorting to infantry units.

What Israeli leaders did not expect, however, is that Palestinian fighters continue to utilize the maxim “The land fights with its people”. Thus, they are resorting to their knowledge of Palestinian towns and cities to ambush and kill Israeli soldiers in unprecedented numbers.

Below are the latest statements by the two main Resistance forces in Gaza, and the Lebanese Resistance Movement Hezbollah.

The statements below were communicated via their Telegram channels and are published here in their original form.

Al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas)

“The fighters of Al-Qassam were able to detonate an anti-personnel explosive device against a Zionist infantry force, consisting of 15 soldiers inside one of the houses, causing its members to fall between dead and wounded in the area of Absan al-Kabira east of the city of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip.
