Palestinian Fighters Kill, Capture Israeli Soldiers in Northern Gaza
Abu Ubaida, spokesperson for the Al-Qassam Brigades, stated in an audio message that the operation took place during new clashes in northern Gaza.

He said that on Saturday evening, resistance fighters managed to kill, injure, or capture several Israeli soldiers in a complex ambush.

“They (the fighters) were able to clash with the members of this force from close range, and then our fighters attacked the support force that rushed to aid them with explosive devices and hit it directly,” the spokesman noted.

In a video statement, the Al-Qassam Brigades spokesperson revealed that fighters led Israeli forces into a trap in a tunnel in the Jabalia camp on Saturday evening.

“Then, the fighters withdrew after blowing up the tunnel, leaving all the members of the force dead, wounded, and captured, and they seized its military equipment,” he concluded.

The spokesperson also noted that over the past two weeks, Palestinian resistance fighters have conducted dozens of operations against Israeli soldiers in Rafah and Beit Hanoun.

Abu Ubaida remarked, "The enemy continues its blind and futile policy of revenge and destruction," emphasizing that the Israeli regime is moving from one defeat to another, seeking meaningless achievements to justify its actions against the Palestinian people.

He added that Palestinian fighters are teaching the Israeli occupiers an unforgettable lesson on all battlefronts in the Gaza Strip while defending their land.

Palestinians living in refugee camps in Lebanon celebrated following the heroic Qassam operation in Jabalia that led to the killing and capture of Israeli soldiers.

Hamas official Osama Hamdan said there was no need for new negotiations with Israel, saying such talks only give the Israeli military “more time to continue the aggression” in Gaza.

Meanwhile, global condemnation has intensified as Israel disregards the World Court’s directive to halt its assault on southern Rafah, with UN Special Rapporteur Francesca Albanese stating: “Israel will not stop this madness until we make it stop.”

Since October 7, Israel's war on Gaza has resulted in the deaths of at least 35,903 people and injuries to 80,420 others.

The defiance of the World Court’s ruling has sparked widespread criticism and calls for decisive international action to halt the Israeli genocide in the Gaza Strip.
