Islamic Jihad Secretary General Ziad al-Nakhalah delivered a powerful message Sunday night regarding the ongoing developments, asserting that ‘Israel’ is now in a state of disarray and has reached out to its American allies for assistance, mere hours into the intensifying battle.
The Islamic Jihad leader revealed that the resistance faction currently holds over 30 Israeli captives who were abducted in the Gaza Strip following Hamas’ heroic operation that commenced on Saturday, named Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.
Al-Nakhala emphatically stated that these captives would not be released until “all of our prisoners are set free.” This demand pertains to the thousands of Palestinians currently detained in Israeli prisons.
“The enemy is breaking, in fact, it has already broken. Our courageous people are encircling the military installations and settlements of the enemy.” he said, adding “Our resolute people have, through their unwavering determination, brought a heavily armed enemy to its knees.”
Nakhalah tackled the series of Israeli attacks on Gaza, saying “The enemy erroneously believes that by perpetrating civilian massacres, it can shatter our people’s resolve. The enemy seeks to bolster its confidence through the destruction of homes in Gaza and the tragic loss of innocent lives. However, this remains a fallacious illusion.”

“We are committed to the fight and shall persist, altering the course of events through our steadfast determination and sacrifices,” he went on to say.
