Abu Hamza declared Al-Quds Brigades’ readiness to release two Israeli hostages for humanitarian reasons.

Abu Hamza, the spokesperson for Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement (PIJ), issued a statement, in which he declared the group’s readiness to release two Israeli hostages for humanitarian reasons.

The Brigades are ready to do so despite the fact that “the prisons of the occupation are filled with hundreds of prisoners from the children of Palestine.”

It is believed that Palestinian Resistance groups in Gaza hold hundreds of Israeli prisoners, captives, and hostages. 

Both Al-Qassam Brigades and Al-Quds Brigades announced their readiness to release civilians in their custody, accusing Israel of obstructing their efforts.

The New York Times on Wednesday reported that the release of 50 captives with the Palestinian Resistance was imminent, before Israel decided to invade parts of Gaza. 

Below are unedited excerpts from the statement of Abu Hamza, as appeared on the Brigades’ Telegram channel. 

“Our people are being subjected to the most heinous crimes and massacres in complete silence.

“Our fighters are repelling the enemy’s tank columns and mercenaries on all fronts of the battle.

“We are facing with all defiance and steadfastness a world war, who clear target is the genocide of our Palestinian people. The enemy, in the midst of madness, targets everything, even its own prisoners in the hands of Saraya Al-Quds and the Palestinian resistance.

“We are an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Flood operation and we stand shoulder to shoulder with the Al-Qassam Brigades.

“We disclaim our responsibility towards the enemy prisoners in light of the barbaric bombing of every inch of Gaza.

“We announce our readiness to release Mrs. Hanna Kastir for humanitarian and health reasons, noting that we may not be able to provide her with healthcare in the face of exhaustion of fuel, electricity, medicine, and all life essentials. 

“We declare our readiness to release the boy Yaghil Yaakov for humanitarian reasons and for his young age, noting that the prisons of the occupation are filled with hundreds of prisoners from the children of Palestine.

“We reassure our people and all those who love and support us across the world, that Saraya Al-Quds (Al-Quds Brigades – PC) and the Resistance are a thousand thousand times well, and our enemy, attempting to advance on different fronts for several long days, is tasting pain and horror in their tanks, which have become mobile coffins, with the help of God.”
