“Al-Qassam fighters are engaged in fierce clashes from point-blank range with the invading enemy forces in the Shejaiya neighborhood,” the group said in a statement.

The Israeli army evacuated four dead and five wounded soldiers following intense battles with Palestinian resistance fighters in the Shejaiya neighborhood of the northern Gaza Strip on Friday evening.

“Four Israeli soldiers were killed and at least five injured in clashes in Shejaiya in Gaza,” Israeli media reported.

The Al-Qassam Brigades announced they had inflicted casualties on Israeli occupation forces in Shejaiya, where fierce battles took place on Friday evening.

“Al-Qassam fighters are engaged in fierce clashes from point-blank range with the invading enemy forces in the Shejaiya neighborhood, east of Gaza City, inflicting deaths and injuries among their ranks. Helicopters are landing to evacuate them,” the Al-Qassam Brigades announced in a statement.

The group also reported that they bombed “with mortar shells a gathering of enemy soldiers and vehicles penetrating Baghdad Street in the Shejaiya neighborhood, east of Gaza City.”

Meanwhile, the Al-Quds Brigades stated they had eliminated an Israeli unit by luring them into a building with a booby-trapped tunnel entrance in Shejaiya.

“The house was also rigged with a bomb from an F16 missile that the enemy had launched at peaceful citizens but did not explode,” the group said in a statement.

Ongoing Genocide

Currently on trial before the International Court of Justice for genocide against Palestinians, Israel has been waging a devastating war on Gaza since October 7. 

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 37,765 Palestinians have been killed, and 86,429 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7.

Moreover, at least 7,000 people are unaccounted for, presumed dead under the rubble of their homes throughout the Strip. 

Palestinian and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

The Israeli war has resulted in an acute famine, mostly in northern Gaza, resulting in the death of many Palestinians, mostly children. 

The Israeli aggression has also resulted in the forceful displacement of nearly two million people from all over the Gaza Strip, with the vast majority of the displaced forced into the densely crowded southern city of Rafah near the border with Egypt – in what has become Palestine’s largest mass exodus since the 1948 Nakba. 

Israel says that 1,200 soldiers and civilians were killed during the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation on October 7. Israeli media published reports suggesting that many Israelis were killed on that day by ‘friendly fire’.
