IOF barely survived: Lions' Den reveals details on Nablus operation
A statement released by the Lions' Den Resistance group, which has originated from Nablus, reveals details on the operation that led Israeli forces to gasp for survival.
The Palestinian Resistance group Areen Al-Ousoud (The Lions' Den) revealed some of the details on the night the Israeli occupation forces stormed the city of Nablus, during which its leader, Wadih Al-Houh, was martyred, along with other five Palestinians, stressing that its leadership lured the occupation to the operation in the old city of Nablus.
In a press statement, the group noted that "on the night of the storming, the leadership of the Lions' Den convened having received security information and estimates that the Israeli occupation's operation targeting the Lions' Den, in which Lapid and Gantz would achieve electoral achievements, was drawing near."
That is when the Lions' Den leadership decided to mobilize the fighters, lure the enemy inside, disperse the fighters from inside the old city, then strike the enemy from various positions.
In its statement, the group indicated that there was a 10-minute time interval between the Israeli occupation force and the group leader, Wadih Al-Houh, along with those with him, to withdraw. However, some final preparations for the trap impeded his withdrawal.
The statement revealed that the Lions' Den's fighters on the outside had discovered the Special Force that entered before the Israeli occupation force which was eliminated "in every true sense of the word" as it came under heavy fire and "previously planted explosives were detonated."
As soon as the force entered, the commander ordered the fighters using his loudest voice to besiege the courtyard, the statement wrote.
According to the statement, the IOF's operation was solely focused on merely rescuing its troops, and having failed to reach the fighters inside, they bombed the house. When they withdrew and failed to eliminate the Lions' Den's leaders and fighters, they announced on all their platforms that they did not obtain any data through the battle. They did not even reach any fighter's body, nor did they even obtain any piece of their equipment.

The IOF, to save face, announced that the purpose of the operation was to target a lab for the Resistance group.
The Lions' Den, in addition, added that the enemy weaves lies to its people - as it always lies - and blames its deaths on run-over accidents, falling from trees, accidental shooting, or climbing the mountains of Nepal, as it had done previously with Zionist Special Forces officer Mahmoud Khair Al-Din.
"We challenge the Zionist occupation to broadcast the documentary video of the entire operation - but, we study you well; we know that you are liars, and you will not do it," the statement wrote.
The statement also addressed the Palestinian people, saying, "Our fighters were hearing your encouraging word, your voices, and even the sound of your bullets aimed at the enemy, and this only made them more determined."
The Lions' Den consists of groups that include members of various Palestinian factions in Nablus and Jenin, in the northern occupied West Bank.
