Major General Faiz al-Duwairi, a military and strategic expert, said that if the war continues, Palestinian resistance forces' ambushes in the Gaza Strip will be successfully repeated, considering the Israeli occupation's announcement of the release of two of its prisoners a heroic achievement. Limited action is an exaggeration.
Israeli media sources had previously reported that the occupation forces were ambushed, described as large and precise, by the Palestinian resistance in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, killing more than 11 soldiers, and more than 100 dead. And it took hours to transport the injured.
On the other hand, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), announced that it had killed 10 Israeli soldiers from Point Zero in the Abasan al-Kabira area, east of Khan Yunis. , in the southern Gaza Strip, saying it managed to detonate an anti-personnel device alongside an Israeli force in the same area, killing its members. Among the dead and injured.
Al-Duwairi said there was no information yet available on whether the sources were talking about a single incident or two separate incidents, adding that occupation forces were responsible for the killing. Looting incidents in the areas have become a common occurrence and are expected to be repeated successfully if the war continues.
The military expert pointed out that given the differences in spatial and temporal circumstances, these events are not repeated with complete uniformity and each event has its own specificity and data. He attributed the occurrence of occupying forces in these ambushes to the fact that data from past attacks are not generalized to all military areas, but rather are distilled down to specific leadership levels to restate the rules of engagement.
Regarding the occupation forces' announcement of freeing two hostages in a complex military operation in the city of Rafah, al-Duwairi pointed out that the announcement was issued by one side and was exaggerated and presented as a heroic Considered work, although if this is true, it is no more than a limited, general work.
Israeli occupation forces announced the release of two Israeli prisoners held by the Palestinian resistance in Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, in a nighttime military operation that coincided with a violent bombardment of the city, resulting in at least 63 deaths. Palestinians were killed – including children – and dozens of others were injured.
Al-Duwairi reported that information provided by sources that have not yet been confirmed indicates that these two prisoners were not in the custody of the al-Qassam Brigades, and there was no firing by the resistance, but they The operation came at a time when occupied Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu served.
Al-Duwairi asked skeptically about the timing of the release of the two captives, as he did not deny that it had happened several days earlier and that there had been a delay in announcing it at an ideal time, in the context that Given that Netanyahu had a long time to talk to US President Joe Biden regarding the Rafah offensive.
Al-Duwairi added, “Even though both captives were in the hands of Hamas, the work is limited in terms of the significance of the achievement, because the presence of two hostages in a location with limited security could lead to access to them, while media intimidation Its purpose is to prove that only military progress will pave the way for the liberation of the hostages.”
