Qassam Brigades clash with IOF troops in Qalqilya
[ 14/03/2008 - 12:28 PM ]
Resistance fighters affiliated with the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas clashed with Israeli occupation forces (IOF) during an IOF incursion, at dawn Friday, into the northern West Bank city of Qalqilya.
The clashes took place at Nablus street and the Brigades said in a statement on Friday that its fighters were confronting the invading troops in an attempt to defend the Palestinian people against "this barbaric Zionist holocaust which the enemy is bringing to the West Bank after the Gaza Strip."
The Brigades further said: "We, in the Qassam Brigades, stress our right to defend our people in the face of usurping Zionists and we find it strange that Abbas's security agencies in the West Bank carry out campaigns of arrest and pursue resistance fighters during the day while the occupation forces carry out the same task at night in a very naked collaboration and unprecedented security coordination with the murderers of our people."
The number of IOF incursions into West Bank cities, villages and refugee camps has risen to an unprecedented level in the light of security coordination between the occupation forces and Abbas's security agencies.
