The Palestinian Resistance continues to confront the invading Israeli forces in several combat zones in the Gaza Strip, with intense battles occurring in the cities of Rafah and Khan Younis amid ongoing Israeli attempts to establish set positions and advance.
According to Al Mayadeen's correspondent, Resistance fighters are engaged in fierce confrontations with occupation forces on the eastern outskirts of Rafah and Khan Younis.
The Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, announced that its fighters had set up a well-planned ambush for an Israeli force in the Ma'an area in Khan Younis, resulting in casualties among its members.
The Brigades detailed that upon the force's arrival at the ambush site, its fighters opened heavy machine gun fire at the advancing unit and targeted it with several anti-personnel and anti-armor shells.
