Gaza, MINA – Al-Qassam Brigades announced Thursday that its fighters had destroyed all or part of 79 Israeli military vehicles in Gaza City during a 72-hour period.

In a separate statement, the Brigade said resistance fighters succeeded in killing two soldiers in the Shuja’iyya neighborhood, east of Gaza City, and two other soldiers, with locally made rifles in the northeastern town of Khan Yunis.
“Our fighters clashed with an infantry unit consisting of six soldiers, killing and wounding them, and confiscated robots in their possession and targeted two tanks, east of the town of Khan Yunis,” Al-Qassam said.
