Hamas vows ‘full force’ after Israel steps up Gaza ground operations

Hamas has stated that its militants in Gaza are prepared to confront Israeli attacks with “full force” following Israel’s expansion of its air and ground attacks on the Palestinian enclave. The group reported that its fighters were clashing with Israeli troops near the border with Israel.

Israel’s military spokesperson, Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, announced that ground forces were expanding their operations and conducting extensive strikes on Hamas tunnels and infrastructure. The armed wing of Hamas confirmed that its fighters were engaged in clashes with Israeli troops in Beit Hanoun and Al-Bureij.

Hamas declared that they were fully prepared to confront Israel’s aggression and frustrate its incursions. They expressed confidence that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and his army would not achieve any military victory.

Israeli ground forces had gathered outside Gaza, where they had been conducting intense aerial bombardment since the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas gunmen. The United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly supported a resolution calling for an immediate humanitarian truce and demanded aid access to Gaza and the protection of civilians.

The resolution, although not binding, carries political weight and received 121 votes in favor, with 44 abstentions and 14 votes against, including Israel and the United States. The White House expressed support for a pause in Israeli military activity in Gaza to provide humanitarian aid, fuel, and electricity to civilians.

Telecoms firms and the Palestinian Red Crescent Society reported that internet and phone services were cut off in Gaza due to Israeli bombardments. The Red Crescent Society lost contact with its Gaza operations room, and the Hamas-run government stated that rescue crews were unable to receive emergency calls.

Concerns about a wider Middle East conflict have increased as the U.S. dispatched more military assets to the region. Israeli bombing has caused significant damage to Gaza’s infrastructure, including power cuts, damaged housing, and destroyed residential units.

Palestinians received warnings from the Israeli military to move from Gaza’s north to the south to avoid the deadliest areas of the conflict. However, many families have chosen to stay, fearing they will not be able to return if they leave their homes and land.
