The military spokesman for the Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, confirmed that “there are no red lines if it comes to responding to the enemy,” assuring the Palestinian people that they have more and a lot in their pocket.
Abu Obeida, in a televised speech broadcast by the Palestinian Al-Aqsa channel, on Thursday, vowed Israel: “You have nothing but sword and fire, and the future is separation and proof.”
He added, “Gather what you want on land, sea and air, as we have prepared for you items of death that will make you curse yourselves,” noting that “the decision to bomb Tel Aviv, Dimona, Ashdod, and beyond is easier for us than drinking water if it permits us to do so.”
He continued, “We have not stopped for an hour to prepare for your enemy’s fortresses,” directing his speech to the people of the West Bank and the 48 Palestinians: “Our weapons are your weapons, our blood is your blood, and our fate is yours.”
Abu Ubaida added: “What distinguishes this battle (the battle of the sword of Jerusalem) is the solidarity of our people in all arenas and their unanimity on the option of resistance,” referring to their weapons and their accumulation of power for the sake of their land and the defense of the Palestinian people and victory for the sanctities.
He continued, “It is not strange that a group of Qassam heroes, led by the leader Bassem Issa, rose in this battle,” noting that every price they pay and will pay is a ransom for Al-Aqsa and Al-Quds.
Tensions escalated in the Palestinian territories due to violent confrontations that took place in the Al-Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem for several days in the last ten days of Ramadan, leaving hundreds of injuries, amid regional and international condemnation.
