QB announces full readiness to block IOF invasion into Gaza Strip
"GAZA, (PIC)-- Abu Obaida, the spokesman of the Qassam Brigades (QB) the armed wing of Hamas Movement, has affirmed that his group has completed all necessary training and preparations to foil any IOF troops attempt to invade Gaza Strip.
At the same time, Abu Obaida lashed out at statements uttered by head of the Egyptian security delegation in Gaza Buhan Hammad for describing Palestinian resistance retaliation to IOF crimes as “gambling”, affirming that the Palestinian people reject such “discouraging” statements......
Moreover, Abu Obaida affirmed that the QB had completed military preparations to block any IOF military adventure in Gaza, asserting that the QB fighters are ready for the battle.
He also underscored that the QB won’t remain idle vis-à-vis the persistent IOF troops’ aggressions on the Palestinian people and that it will capture more Israeli soldiers and continue shelling Israeli installations and settlements in retaliation to the IOF hostilities.
“The enemy must think a thousand times before unleashing threats to invade the Gaza Strip”, Abu Obaida said......"
Compare this empty boasting with the words and deeds of Hizbullah. During the Israeli attack on Bint Jbeil and the ferocious Lebanese resistance to it, Hasan Nasrallah made a speech. He was not boastful and he did not brag even though Hizbullah was mauling Israeli troops. To his credit Nasrallah said, "We will resist and inflict as many casualties as possible on the Israelis, but we are not a regular army. We do not defend fixed positions or hold on to a given territory. We are guerrillas."
