The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, has denounced the latest round of Israeli airstrikes against targets across the Gaza Strip, saying the Tel Aviv regime continues its aggressions against the besieged enclave to cover up its fiasco in the wake of the recent escape of six Palestinian prisoners from a high-security jail in the northern part of the occupied territories.
“Through bombing of Gaza, the occupying Israeli regime is making attempts to cover up its weakness and failure following Operation Freedom Tunnel, or its inability to stop the freedom struggle,” Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem said in a post published on his Twitter page on Monday.
يواصل الاحتلال محاولاته التغطية على عجزه وفشله بعد عملية نفق الحرية أو وقف انتفاضة الحرية ، عبر القصف على غزة
رد المقاومة في غزة على القصف، والاشتباك مع الاحتلال في كل مدن الضفة والقدس، يؤكد تواصل انتفاضة الحرية لاسناد اسرانا،وعجز الاحتلال عن فرض المعادلات على شعبنا ومقاومته

He added, “The response of the resistance [front] in Gaza to the Israeli bombing and engagements with occupation forces across West Bank cities and al-Quds validate the continuation of the freedom struggle of heroic [Palestinian] prisoners and the inability of the occupying regime to impose equations against Palestine and the resistance.”
Israeli military aircraft launched a series of aerial attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip in the predawn hours of Monday, with no reports of casualties.
The Palestinian Shehab news agency reported that Israeli warplanes bombed Hamas compounds east of the border town of Rafah.
