Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas movement, on Sunday said that the six martyrs who were killed on Saturday in the central Gaza Strip managed to foil a dangerous spying operation.
The Brigades said in a statement that the martyrs were on a security mission to thwart the largest technical spying system planted by Israel in the Gaza Strip during the past decade to attack the Palestinian resistance.
The statement noted that the six martyrs worked hard and sacrificed their lives to protect the Palestinian people and the resistance factions against the Israeli schemes targeting them.
The Brigades mourned these “brave fighters” who over the past years had accomplished many missions within the framework of the “battle of minds” with the Israeli occupation and spared no effort to protect the Palestinian resistance project.
The statement underlined that there are further details related to the incident that will be revealed to the Palestinian people later.
Al-Qassam Brigades held the Israeli occupation responsible for this crime, stressing that it will “pay a heavy price” soon.
