 An Israeli military analyst named Yoav Zeitoun recently said that the army in Israel is amazed by how strong the Islamic Resistance Movement, also known as Hamas, is in the Gaza Strip. Let's find out more!

Hamas's Strength and Armament

According to Zeitoun, Hamas has been preparing for a long time, and that's why it's not easy for the Israeli army to defeat them quickly. The army is astonished by the strength and weapons that Hamas has. It's like they have their own real army, just 50 minutes away from Tel Aviv!

Hamas's Weapons

Hamas has a lot of weapons, including RPG shells, which are their main weapon. They also have advanced rocket launchers, explosive drones, and attack drones that they made by copying an Israeli drone. They even have machine guns, rifles, sniper rifles, and lots of other weapons. They are well-equipped!

The Battle in Beit Hanoun and Shujaiya

There have been fierce battles in Beit Hanoun and Shujaiya, two places in the Gaza Strip. These battles show that it will take a long time for the Israeli army to clear these areas of Hamas fighters. It might even take about 6 months to completely cleanse Shujaiya!

The War and Its Impact

Since October 7, the Israeli army has been fighting against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. This war has caused a lot of destruction and a humanitarian disaster. Many people have been killed or injured, and a lot of buildings and infrastructure have been destroyed.

Hamas's Response

Hamas has been responding to the Israeli attacks by launching their own attacks. They have targeted Israeli settlements and military bases around Gaza. In their attack, they have killed and wounded many Israelis and even captured some of them.

So, the Israeli army is surprised by how strong Hamas is. They have a lot of weapons and are well-prepared.
