The spokesperson for the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, Abu Ubaida, announced that the brigades’ fighters had destroyed 27 Israeli military vehicles, either completely or partially, in the last 48 hours.

He said on Monday that the Israeli forces that had penetrated the northwest and south of Gaza City were also targeted with mortar shells and that direct confrontations occurred with the enemy forces. He mentioned that a group of Israeli soldiers near Erez was also hit with mortar shells.

The Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement, also claimed that it had attacked a gathering of Israeli army vehicles and soldiers west of the Erez site with mortar shells. It said that it had shelled an infantry force in the Al-Samuni area and another one in the Al-Maqousi area in Gaza City with dozens of shells. It added that it had fired a barrage of “focused” missiles at the Israeli army near the Sufa site.

Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation aircraft continued to launch more than 100 intense raids on various areas of Gaza City since Sunday evening, especially the areas close to the incursion lines. Gunfire and violent clashes were heard on the fronts of the incursion between the Palestinian factions and the Israeli forces.

The Israeli military vehicles that had retreated on Saturday from the northern Gaza Strip advanced again on Sunday along the northern and southern axis of Gaza City, reaching Al-Rashid Street which overlooks the sea, in an attempt to separate the northern part of the Strip from the southern one.

The Israeli aircraft, artillery, and warships carried out more than 100 raids on Gaza City and the northern Gaza Strip in the past hours, targeting residential buildings, roads, and agricultural lands in an unprecedented way.
