Israeli threats of a ground invasion, doesn’t scare us – Hamas

    The military wing of Hamas spokesperson Abu Obeideh stated yesterday that the group “doesn’t scare us and we are ready for it” in response to the possibility of an Israeli ground invasion of the blockaded Gaza Strip.

    He added in a videotaped broadcast that since a big attack on southern Israel on October 7, 200 persons had been taken prisoner by Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, and that another 50 were being held by other “resistance factions and in other places.”

    The bodies of those murdered in Israel’s shelling of Gaza, which was set off by a devastating Hamas strike, are piling up in the hospital morgues there; an ice cream truck has even been used to store corpses until they are buried.

    Israel has been attacking targets in Gaza for days in an effort to destroy Hamas, the group that rules the territory, after its fighters breached the border’s military structure on October 7 and massacred over 1,400 people in southern Israel.


    In Gaza, where mortuaries can barely hold dozens of bodies, Israel’s airstrikes have killed at least 2,750 lives. The bodies are being claimed by relatives faster than they can be.

    In the Deir el-Balah hospital parking lot in central Gaza, a white truck adorned in ice cream stick posters is currently filled with bodies wrapped in white body bags.

    Several relatives of Talaat Abu Lashine’s family are among them. At morning, two shells landed on the home. He claimed, “Sixteen individuals were at home, including eight youngsters who were soundly asleep.

    Many victims were merely left behind in the streets of Gaza City, a little further north, where tens of thousands of people have fled south in anticipation of an anticipated ground invasion after Israel warned

    According to Philippe Lazzarini, the director of UNRWA, even corpse bags are currently hard to get by.

    He claimed that “every story emerging out of Gaza is about survival, despair, and loss.”

    Ihsan al-Natour, a graveyard worker in Rafah, southern Gaza, stated, “There are just so many dead sometimes we don’t even have time to write their names.”

    Due to the high death toll and limited burial space, as well as the necessity of prompt burials in accordance with Muslim funeral procedures, Gaza’s Ministry of Religious Affairs has advised using community graves.

    In related news, Ismail Haniyeh, the leader of Hamas, and Turkey’s senior diplomat spoke over the phone yesterday about the potential for hostage releases, according to his office.

    According to a readout from the foreign ministry, Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan spoke with the exiled Haniyeh on the phone about “the latest developments in Palestine and the possibility of release of civilians.”
