All three major Palestinian and Lebanese fighting forces reported decisive operations against the Israeli army, both in Gaza and in northern Israel. 

Al-Qassam blew up an Israeli tank, targeted Israeli infantry forces and ambushed others.

Al-Quds Brigades struck several Israeli targets in Khan Yunis and its environs, while Hezbollah has targeted, using ‘appropriate weapons’, many Israeli military positions at the Eastern and Western sectors.

Below are the latest statements by the two main Resistance forces in Gaza, and the Lebanese Resistance Movement Hezbollah.
