Palestinian resistance launches Operation al-Quds Sword as Israeli airstrikes kill 25 in GazaThe factions operating under the Joint Operations Room announced in a statement that resistance fighters have fired hundreds of rockets towards the occupied territories as part of the operation.

The rocket fire was in retaliation for the Tel Aviv regime’s raids on al-Aqsa Mosque and Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, they said.

“Operational-Quds Sword is meant to achieve the liberation of the holy city, and is in response to the Occupation’s crimes against its residents as well as cries by its freedom-loving locals,” the statement stressed.

Israeli sources confirmed that as many as 250 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip towards the occupied territories, adding the Israeli military conducted waves of bombardments against 130 targets in the besieged enclave, that they claimed killed 15 Hamas members.

The Joint Operations Room said Palestinian resistance factions launched precise strikes against Israeli-occupied lands, struck an Israeli car near the Gaza border and later carried out intense missile strikes against targets in the coastal city of Tel Aviv in addition to other places.

“We tell the enemy that we have already warned it against insistence on aggression against our sanctities and people without any restraint. It is now time for it to pay the costs. We have built up strength to protect our people wherever needed. We will not abandon them, no matter what the consequences might be. Our weapons are for all of our people, wherever they are,” it further stated.

“Let the cowardly enemy know that the era of singling out al-Quds (Jerusalem) and al-Aqsa Mosque is long gone,” the Joint Operations Room underlined.

Hamas will continue operations unless Israel ends al-Quds, al-Aqsa raids

Furthermore, a senior leader of the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement said his fellow fighters will continue to stage retaliatory rocket attacks against the Israeli-occupied territories as long as the regime and its military forces press ahead with their brutal hostilities in the occupied Jerusalem al-Quds and the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
