JOR tours Resistance posts on Gaza outskirts, announces maneuver
The Joint Operations Room of Palestinian Resistance Factions conducts a reconnaissance tour along the Gaza Strip separation barrier to ensure preparedness and readiness.
The Joint Operations Room of the Palestinian Resistance Factions confirmed on Sunday that it has conducted a reconnaissance and inspection tour of military Resistance sites and surveillance points along the separation barrier between the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian territories occupied in 1948.
The tour was done to ensure that Resistance fighters were prepared and ready to engage enemies if necessary, in the highly strategic zone of the Gaza Strip.
The JOR leadership reported that during the tour, they surveyed the posts on the outskirts and inspected the Resistance's sites.
According to the statement released by the JOR, the sites represent advanced Resistance points within the zone.
The Joint Operations Room commended the vigilance and dedication of its fighters and called on them to raise their readiness level. It emphasized that this tour comes within the framework of boosting the Resistance's readiness and preparedness, which will culminate in the al-Rukn al-Shadid 4 (Mighty Pillar 4) military maneuver.
The military maneuver is set to take place next Tuesday to mark the 18th anniversary of the Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip.
Last December, the JOR announced the al-Rukn al-Shadid maneuver near the separation barrier with the occupied Palestinian territories in the northern Gaza Strip. The drills featured elite fighters of the Palestinian Resistance factions and the use of light and medium weapons in close combat situations.
Al-Rukn al-Shadid was first announced in 2020, and since then, the Resistance in Gaza has made it an annual event where various factions and groups showcase their military capabilities. The maneuvers also serve as a platform for different members of the Palestinian Resistance to share their experiences and achievements in order to enhance the coordination on the field between them.
Sunday's tour coincides with statements made by Resistance factions in which they reiterated their willingness to take military action against the inhumane treatment of Palestinian prisoners by Israeli occupation authorities.
