Gaza City, November 22 (RHC)-- The military wing of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas says its fighters have destroyed as many as 60 Israeli military vehicles over the last three days amid Israel's unrelenting aggression against the Gaza Strip.

Abu Ubaida, the spokesman for the al-Qassam Brigades, provided the information, saying the targeted vehicles included at least 10 armored personnel carriers.   "Our fighters targeted an [Israeli] infantry force with an anti-personnel projectile on Saturday, causing significant injuries," he said, adding that resistance fighters heard the screams of the enemy soldiers who cried for help.

The spokesman, meanwhile, reported that the al-Qassam Brigades inflicted "fatalities and injuries" on the Israeli forces in "several qualitative operations," which were carried out during the same period.

According to the al-Qassam's spokesman, "When the [Israeli] enemy is unable to tow its damaged vehicles, it resorts to bombing them from the air to erase the traces of its failure."   "The enemy may have bombed its own forces on the ground, thinking they were captured in the Rantisi Hospital operation," Abu Ubaida said, referring to an attack by the al-Qassam fighters against the hospital.

"A force of elite [resistance] fighters, consisting of 25 members, carried out a composite attack on the enemy forces at Rantisi Hospital, which the enemy [has] turned into a base after evacuating it of patients," he noted.

According to Palestinian media, soon after Abu Ubaida's announcement, resistance groups fired a massive volley of rockets towards Israeli targets, including in the coastal city of Tel Aviv and other areas in the center of the occupied territories.

Palestinian fighters have been engaged in defensive operations against Israeli forces since October 7. On that day, Israel launched an all-out war against the besieged Gaza Strip in response to an operation carried out by the territory's resistance groups. 

More than 13,300 Palestinians have been killed since the onset of the Israeli military aggression, including upwards of 5,600 children.
