Hamas destroyed 28 Israeli military vehicles in one day, spokesman says

Hamas’s al-Qassam Brigades have completely or partially destroyed 28 Israeli military vehicles in the Gaza Strip over the last 24 hours, according to its spokesman, Abu Obaida.

The al-Qassam Brigades have deployed anti-fortification and anti-personnel weapons against Israel at close range, Abu Obaida said.

Hamas has previously showcased its fighters targeting Israeli military vehicles in videos where fighters emerge from rubble and tunnels carrying anti-personnel weapons and rocket-propelled grenades.

In a statement, Abu Obaida also said that Hamas was using mortar shells against Israeli soldiers and claimed responsibility for a series of rocket barrages at Israeli cities.
