Even an indefinite war won’t annihilate resistance: Islamic Jihad

The Palestinian resistance movement of Islamic Jihad says the Israeli regime will never be able to realize its goal of eliminating resistance groups from the Gaza Strip no matter how much it prolongs its ongoing war against the Palestinian territory.

“The enemy’s declared goal of annihilating the resistance will not be achieved, even if the war continues indefinitely,” Abu Hamza, a spokesman for the al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, said in a video message on Tuesday.

The regime began the war on October 7 following an operation staged by Gaza’s resistance groups against the occupied territories, dubbed Operation al-Aqsa Storm.

Around 23,210 people, most of them women and children, have died in the brutal military onslaught so far.

Aside from trying to eliminate Gaza’s resistance movements, the regime has been seeking to bring about forced displacement of the territory’s 2.3-million-strong population to neighboring countries.

Abu Hamza, however, asserted, “The Palestinian people and their resistance are stronger and greater than the desperate attempts at liquidation.”

The spokesman said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on whose orders the war is being waged, was “selling illusions and mirages” to Israeli settlers by promising them “imminent return” to Gaza, from which the Israeli military withdrew in 2005.

“…in the end, Netanyahu will have no choice but to submit to what the battlefield dictates and go, reluctantly and submissively, to his resounding historical defeat…,” Abu Hamza remarked.

“Perhaps the most significant achievement of the enemy’s army is its expertise in destroying stone and humans with tons of American explosives, which exposed the hypocrisy of the world and those who claim to believe in human rights,” he noted.

The United States, Israel’s biggest ally, has been providing the regime with unbridled military support since the onset of the war, arming Tel Aviv with more than 10,000 tons of military hardware.

Washington has also torpedoed the prospect of cessation of the Israeli aggression by stonewalling ratification of all United Nations Security Council resolutions that have called for the realization of a permanent ceasefire in Gaza.

The Palestinian official, meanwhile, said the resistance’s achievements were “far greater” than what has been caught on camera by its fighters.

Enumerating the resistance’s most recent gains, Abu Hamza announced that the resistance’s fighters had downed an Israeli “intelligence aircraft” and gleaned important information from it.

He also said the fighters had managed to launch several attacks against hostile vehicles and kill an Israeli special force member.
