In conjunction with the start of the celebrations, the Joint Operations Room of the Palestinian Resistance Factions in Gaza said on Saturday that Operation Avenging the Free is a new chapter of glory that the Resistance fought as a unified structure.
In a statement, the Operations Room said although Operation Avenging the Free has ended, the banners will not and shall not be lowered, and the will to fight will not and shall not ever dwindle.
In the Jenin refugee camp, Gazans carried Resistance fighters of the Jenin Brigades - Al-Quds Brigades on their shoulders.

'Israel' pledged to stop assassinations: Resistance sources- Exclusive
Sources in the Resistance told Al Mayadeen on Saturday that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) movement obtained an undeclared Israeli pledge to stop assassinations implicitly implied in the expression of “individuals” in the Egyptian-mediated ceasefire agreement.
Before the ceasefire entered into force, the Palestinian Resistance said it hit "Tel Aviv", occupied cities, and the Gaza envelope settlements with intense salvoes of rockets until the last second.
In the same context, the Israeli occupation's "National" Security Advisor, Tzachi Hanegbi, said "Israel" has agreed to the Egyptian-mediated ceasefire but said that "quiet will be met with quiet," as per a statement issued by the office of Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Earlier, Egyptian media reported that Cairo-mediated a ceasefire between the Palestinian Resistance and the Israeli occupation that took effect at 10 pm Saturday.
The ceasefire agreement text stated that Cairo urged the two sides to implement the agreement and is working to follow up on that by communicating with them.
According to the text, the ceasefire between the two sides will be adhered to, and it includes stopping the targeting of civilians and individuals and the demolition of homes.
Israeli media cited a security source as saying that the Israeli occupation did not commit to stopping the assassinations.
This comes after the Israeli occupation launched a five-day heinous aggression against the Gaza Strip, targeting residential houses in the north, center, and south of the Strip.
In retaliation, Al-Quds Brigades and the Palestinian Resistance factions launched Operation Avenging the Free, in which it fired advanced rockets and missiles that bypassed the Iron Dome and targeted several Israeli settlements, occupied cities, and occupation sites.
Former Israeli occupation Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told the Israeli Channel 12 that 70% of illegal Israeli settlers in the south fled due to the Palestinian Resistance's rocket fire.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, the number of Palestinians killed in the aggression rose to 33 martyrs, including six children and three women, and 147 people were wounded.
