Hamas’ military wing has DESTROYED at least 160 IDF military vehicles since Israel’s invasion of Gaza
By Laura Harris // Nov 17, 2023

The military wing of Hamas, formally the Islamic Resistance Movement, has announced that it destroyed at least 160 Israel Defense Forces (IDF) military vehicles since its invasion of Gaza.

Abu Obaida, the spokesman for the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades (AQB), touted this achievement in a message recorded Nov. 11. He said the wing has either completely or partially destroyed more than 160 Israeli military vehicles – including tanks and armored vehicles – since Israel invaded the Gaza Strip. Abu Obaida also bragged in the same video that Palestinian fighters have managed to destroy 25 Israeli military vehicles in only 48 hours.

In a separate video recorded prior, Abu Obaida reported the destruction of two dozen Israeli combat vehicles, also within a 48-hour period. He mentioned that AQB snipers effectively engaged soldiers in residential buildings and those attempting to expose themselves to fortified positions. The spokesman ultimately promised that Israel won't experience a moment of calm in Gaza, and would pay a high price for its ground aggression against the blockaded territory.

"Our resistance fighters come out from under the ground, above the ground and from under the rubble – and destroy [Israel's]armored vehicles and tanks," declared Abu Ubaida. He pointed out that Palestinian fighters are putting up a violent resistance against Israeli tanks, forcing them to retreat.

Abu Ubaida also condemned what he referred to as the massacre and killing of women and children by the Israeli forces, claiming that it was the only achievement of the Zionist regime in its war on Gaza. In contrast, he concluded that the great sacrifices made by Palestinian fighters were a prelude to the "final victory."

Israel rebuked for the high number of civilian casualties and the Gaza humanitarian crisis

Ubaida accused Israel of blocking the release of the hostages held by Hamas, stating that the only viable path to their freedom was through a comprehensive deal. The militant group, along with other countries and organizations, has been calling for a ceasefire or at least a humanitarian pause.

According to a report from Agence France-Presse, Qatar, in coordination with the U.S., is leading mediation to secure the release of at least 10 to 15 hostages held by Hamas. In return, Israel would agree to a one or two-day cessation of hostilities. As of writing, the AQB has already released several prisoners for humanitarian reasons with the intercession of Doha.

However, the Israeli invasion of Gaza continued. In response, Palestinian factions launched multiple rocket attacks on Israeli settlements surrounding Gaza in retaliation for the prolonged Israeli aggression.

United Nations (UN) Secretary-General António Guterres criticized Israel for both the high number of civilian casualties and the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. He also pointed out the unusually high number of journalists who were killed in Gaza.

While Guterres understood Israel's concern for security, he stressed the fact that Israel disregarded the laws of war and its principles. Thus, the UN leader believed that Gaza should be governed by the Palestinian people after the military operations.
