Abu Ubaida's Audio-Visual Appearance

 Abu Ubaida, the spokesperson for the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, which is the military wing of the Hamas movement, made his first appearance in both audio and video format since November 23 of last year. It happened in the year 2024, and his speech was shown on Al-Jazeera.

What Abu Ubaida Said

Abu Ubaida spoke more than 3 months after the Israeli war against Gaza. He said, "We caused a lot of damage to the enemy, and we continue to make them pay for their actions. We targeted and disabled over 1000 Israeli military vehicles during the 100 days in the Palestinian territory."

Al-Qassam's Local Weapon Manufacturing

Abu Ubaida revealed something really interesting. He said that the weapons used by al-Qassam against the occupation are made right there in Palestine. He emphasized that these weapons are super important because they helped them fight against the powerful American arsenal that the enemy had. Without their own weapons, they wouldn't have been able to do much.

Abu Ubaida also explained that the most important industry for al-Qassam is the "fighting human." He talked about the brave Palestinian fighters who are determined to protect their land and people, no matter what.

Key Points from Abu Ubaida's Speech

Abu Ubaida mentioned a few important things in his speech:

  • It's not worth talking about anything other than stopping the aggression against our people.
  • The enemy failed to achieve its goals or release any of our prisoners.
  • We don't know what happened to many of Israeli PWOs in recent weeks.
  • We need to let Muslims all around the world know that the occupation destroyed most of the mosques in the Gaza Strip.
  • We send our support to the resistance in Lebanon, Yemen, and Iraq, and we mourn their martyrs.
  • The resistance is planning to expand its operations in the coming days while the aggression continues.

Abu Ubaida's Speech Importance

This speech by Abu Ubaida is really important because it's the first time we heard from him in both audio and video since November 23 of last year. It happened right before a temporary ceasefire that lasted for a week.
