Al-Quds Brigades vowed to continue the battle against Israel until all Palestinian lands are liberated and all Palestinians return home.
The Gaza Strip has seen the collapse of a number of tunnels, which claimed the lives of dozens of Palestinians. Palestinian resistance in Gaza says tunnels are a strategic weapon to defend the Palestinian people from Israeli occupation attacks.
