Israeli Security Minister Yoav Gallant had said on Tuesday that “Israel” paid “heavy prices” in the last day, as the Israeli occupation military pursues a wide-scale invasion of the Gaza Strip as confrontations concentrate across the northern and northeastern parts of the Strip.
“We are deploying forces on a large scale, deep in the Strip,” Gallant told troops of the Israeli occupation Air Force’s elite Shaldag and 669 units.
“Unfortunately, in war, there are also prices, and the prices on the last day were heavy prices,” he indicated.
The Israeli occupation military had admitted that only two sergeants were killed during confrontations in the northern Gaza Strip while two others were injured.
Al-Qassam Brigades spokesperson Abu Obeida emphasized that Palestinian Resistance fighters “engaged in fierce confrontations on every point of contact” with the Israeli occupation forces.
Al-Qassam Brigades announced they had targeted an Israeli infantry unit in Beit Hanoun with a shell fired from a modified agri-drone in Beit Hanoun, the northern Gaza Strip, on the 26th day of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.
Furthermore, al-Qassam confirmed this morning that they destroyed an Israeli vehicle that had attempted to infiltrate east of the al-Zeitoun neighborhood in southern Gaza.
Yossi Yehoshua, the newspaper’s military affairs expert, emphasized that the use of anti-tank weapons by the Resistance exacts a high price on the IOF, in addition to other threats, including sniping and the use of IEDs.
Regarding the targeting of soldiers and military vehicles, the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth pointed out that the primary threat to the Israeli forces lies in the anti-tank weapons possessed by the Palestinian resistance.
