Occupation warplanes launch two raids on resistance sites in the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli occupation forces officially announced the end of its burtal aggression in Jenin which lasted for two consecutive days.
Earlier, Israeli warplanes launched raids on two sites in Gaza early Wednesday after a large number of rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip toward the occupied Palestinian territories in retaliation to the Israeli aggression on the Jenin refugee camp, culminating in the killing of 13 Palestinians and the wounding of dozens of others.
In further detail, Al Mayadeen’s correspondent reported that the Israeli occupation forces bombed sites belonging to the Resistance in the west of the Gaza Strip and Beit Lahia, north of the strip.
A large number of rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip toward the occupied Palestinian territories, and the Israeli occupation’s Iron Dome system tried to intercept the projectiles, our correspondent reported.
The Israeli Emergency Alert System sirens sounded in a number of settlements in the Gaza Envelope, including “Nir Am” and “Sderot”, amid a state of panic among Israeli settlers.
“Five rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip toward Sderot and the Gaza envelope,” Israeli media reported.
Palestinians are currently returning to the Jenin camp after the occupation forces withdrew from it, and the resistance fighters are roaming the streets.
Several Israeli media outlets reported, quoting a spokesperson for the Israeli occupation forces, that “Israeli forces have begun withdrawing from Jenin.”
The Israeli occupation forces began to leave the camp shortly after 9 PM on Tuesday, Israeli Channel 7 and Channel 13 reported.
‘Israel’ failed on a strategic level
Israeli media commented on the withdrawal of Israeli occupation forces from Jenin by acknowledging that on a strategic level, the “Israeli operation in Jenin won’t change reality in the West Bank.”
Reports also stated that military commanders halted the operation as quickly as possible to “limit casualties and avoid an escalation.”
Israeli media added that the “operation will not restore Israeli deterrence nor change the Resistance direction of the fight”, but rather Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) will continue with full force to “control” the West Bank.
Meanwhile, Al-Quds Brigades – Jenin Brigade celebrated the victory of the Palestinian Resistance over the invading Israeli forces in the West Bank city of Jenin on Wednesday.
“The Palestinian Resistance, chiefly Al-Quds Brigades – Jenin Brigades, wrote in the battle of the Fury of Jenin the most magnificent epics of heroism and sacrifice,” the armed wing said. It cost the enemy heavy losses in this round of confrontations which will go down in the history of the struggle of the Palestinian people, it added.
The group thanked the steadfast Palestinian people residing in the Jenin camp, its countryside, and the cities that embraced its people. The Jenin Brigade also saluted the families of those martyred, injured, and detained during the battle for the great sacrifices they made.
On his part, Hamas politburo chief Ismail Haniyeh said, “All options to support Jenin and its people were on the table,” adding that the heroic operation in “Tel Aviv” and other acts of Resistance which took place all over Palestine came in support for Jenin and its people.
He also added that Hamas sent clear messages to the occupation through third parties to inform it that the Resistance was aware of the situation in Jenin pushing it to stop its aggression on the camp.
Echoing Haniyeh’s remarks, Al-Qassam Brigades congratulated the residents of the camp as well as its fighters, the fighters of Al-Quds Brigades, and those of Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, for their steadfastness during the battle.
