Heavy casualties among Israeli troops east of Khan Younis
GAZA-The Palestinian resistance in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday ambushed Tuesday morning Israeli troops near Kissufim crossing northeast of Khan Younis causing many casualties among them.
In a communiqué, the Brigades of Abu Ali Mustafa claimed responsibility for this ambush, saying that its fighters detonated an explosive device at an Israeli military force south of the crossing and engaged in armed clashes with its troops inflicting heavy casualties in their ranks.
The Brigades said that this operation was in retaliation to Israel’s ongoing crimes against the Palestinian people and vowed to resist the occupation until the liberation of Palestine.
Press sources reported that many Israeli soldiers were seriously injured during the attack.
