Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, has denounced Palestine TV for blaming the resistance and its tunnels for the electricity crisis in Gaza.
In Twitter remarks on Tuesday, spokesman for the Brigades Abu Obeida described the Palestine TV’s report on Gaza tunnels as an “attempt to cover up the Palestinian Authority’s complicity in Israel’s blockade on the Strip.
Abu Obeida said, “The tunnels are the most creative and greatest thing produced by the Palestinian resistance to confront the Israeli military arsenal and the unjust blockade on Gaza.”
He added that “the resistance has made a stream of sacrifices in order to build its tunnels that surprised the enemy and frustrated its security and military plans.”
Palestine TV on Monday evening accused the Palestinian resistance in Gaza of providing its underground tunnels with electricity and lights and contributing to the suffering of the population.
