Senior Hamas movement representative Osama Hamdan said that Israel is concealing the true numbers of its losses in the Gaza Strip.
Hamdan confirmed in a press conference held Saturday in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, that hundreds of occupation soldiers were killed and injured.
He stressed that Palestinians will not be convinced that peace will be achieved without the end of the occupation.
The Hamas representative held the United States and its President Joe Biden responsible for targeting civilians in Gaza.
The Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, announced an attack it launched on Israeli forces inside a building in the Gaza Strip, on Saturday.
It indicated in a brief statement that the attack was made on a force holed up in a building northwest of Gaza City, where a clash occurred with it, leaving five Israeli soldiers dead and others injured.
The Qassam Brigades also announced the bombing of Kibbutz Nirim with a missile barrage, in response to the Israeli massacres against the Palestinian people in Gaza.
The Gaza Strip has been subjected to Israeli land, sea and air bombardment since Hamas and other Palestinian factions launched operation “Al-Aqsa Flood” on October 7.
The “Al-Aqsa Flood” was met with the Israeli “Iron Swords” operation, as the Israeli army launched raids on Gaza Strip, which is inhabited by more than two million Palestinians who suffer from deteriorating living conditions, as a result of an ongoing Israeli siege since 2006.
