Hamas fires back at Israel in response to occupation army’s assault

The war in Gaza witnessed several developments politically and on the ground on Tuesday, with Hamas firing back as clashes intensify once again.

The Israeli occupation army intensified its attack on the Strip, specifically its south, while al-Qassam Brigades announced it had attacked Tel Aviv with a missile salvo and bombed Beersheba in southern Israel with some missiles, in response to massacres against civilians.

The official death toll among the occupation army since October 7 has risen to 405 soldiers.

Violent clashes erupted with the incursion of the occupation military vehicles and tanks into the city of Khan Yunis, where the death toll of the occupation army rose on Tuesday to five, including two officers.


Hamas fights back

The al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas movement alongside other resistance factions, fought fiercely against occupation forces in the areas of the incursion into the Gaza Strip.

Qassam said that it targeted three military bulldozers, a tank, and a troop carrier in the northern axis of Khan Yunis with Al-Yassin 105 missiles.

It also indicated that its fighters targeted “the enemy’s command rooms in the southern axis of Gaza City with a 114 mm short-range rocket system.”

It bombed the Kissufim site with the same missile system.

Hezbollah soldiers announced on Tuesday that they had targeted a gathering of Israeli occupation soldiers in the al-Taihat Triangle and confirmed that they had achieved direct hits.

Hezbollah also fired 10 missiles from southern Lebanon towards the Israeli Zabdin barracks in the occupied Shebaa Farms, and other missiles towards an Israeli military site opposite the town of Blida in the central sector of southern Lebanon.

The occupation army announced Monday morning that three soldiers were injured by mortar shells fired from Lebanon at dawn, targeting a military site in the Shtoula border settlement.


Calls for a ceasefire

The Gulf Cooperation Council has called for an immediate ceasefire, the halting of Israel’s military operations in Gaza, and to ensure the provision of all humanitarian and relief aid and basic needs.

It expressed its condemnation of “starving” civilians and the continued targeting of civilian facilities and infrastructure by the occupation.

The Council rejected any justifications for describing Israel’s aggression on Gaza as self-defense.

It also affirmed its support for the sovereignty of the Palestinian people over all the Palestinian territories occupied since June 1967, backing the initiative of Saudi Arabia, the European Union and the Arab League to revive the peace process in the Middle East in cooperation with Egypt and Jordan.

Officials in the US President’s administration have begun to develop a vision for post-war Gaza, based primarily on the Palestinian Authority’s eventual control on the Strip.

The US special envoy to Yemen, Tim Lenderking is scheduled to head to the Gulf region this week, to continue regional coordination to protect maritime security in the Red Sea.

A New York Times investigation revealed that a missile likely launched by the Hamas movement almost turned the tides of the war after it targeted the Israeli Sdot Micha Airbase base on October 7, confirming that it fell in a valley without any casualties, and ignited fires near where the nuclear weapons are located.
