QB: Rules of the game in Gaza have changed
The armed wing of Hamas Movement, the Qassam Brigades (QB) warned the Israeli occupation forces on Wednesday that “rules of the game” in Gaza Strip have changed, and that any IOF invasion of the Strip won”t be a “picnic”.
The QB warning came after an IOF officer of the elite forces was killed and two other soldiers were wounded during an IOF incursion into Khan Younis city, southeast of the Strip. One QB fighter was martyred in the armed clashes.
According to local sources, an earlier IOF attempt to advance into Jabalya city, north of Gaza city, was botched by the QB fighters who also forced the invading troops to retreat.
“The killing of the IOF officer was a clear message to the occupation that any IOF incursion into the Strip will cost it a high price as rules of the game have changed in Gaza Strip”, asserted Abu Obaida, the spokesman of the QB.
“If the [Israeli] occupation wished to try invading the Gaza Strip once again, then they will lose a lot as they have seen what had happened to them in a limited incursion; yet, if the IOF troops opted to continue their intrusions into the tiny Strip, then their losses will be more as the invasion of Gaza won”t be a picnic for the Israeli occupation soldiers”, the QB spokesman furthermore underlined.
Moreover, Abu Obadia disclosed that the Palestinian resistance capabilities were in continuous development, and the QB fighters along with other Palestinian fighters became also more organized.
