Today, Saturday, the Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), published a video message to the families of the Israeli prisoners in its custody entitled “Time is running out.”
Al-Qassam said in its letter that 10 years have passed since 4 Israeli soldiers were imprisoned in the Gaza Strip in 2014, namely Hadar Goldin, Shaul Aron, Avira Mengistu, and Hisham Al-Sayyed.
The letter added that in 2014, Benjamin Netanyahu’s government neglected your children and did not return them, and unfortunately contact with the cell responsible for them was cut off.
She continued, “On October 7, 2023, we captured dozens of Israeli soldiers, and communication is still in our hands.”
Al-Qassam concluded her message by saying, “In the past and now again, Netanyahu and his government are not interested in the return of your children and loved ones… Do not forget that time passes and fades away.”
The families of the Israeli prisoners detained in the Gaza Strip are scheduled to participate today, Saturday, in a major demonstration in front of the Israeli Ministry of Defense in Tel Aviv, starting this evening and continuing for 24 hours, as the war enters its 100th day.
The Association of Families of Detainees in the Gaza Strip built a large model of a tunnel similar to the tunnels in the Gaza Strip in the Detainees and Missing Persons Square opposite the Ministry of Defense in Tel Aviv.
This step aims to highlight the suffering of the Israeli prisoners detained in the Gaza Strip and to inform those in solidarity with the families about the difficulties and harsh conditions they face inside the tunnels in Gaza.
The erection of the statue comes in the context of the popular movement that is expected to witness an escalation in the next few days, and within the framework of the prisoners’ families’ efforts to put more pressure on decision-makers in Israel to accelerate the conclusion of a prisoner exchange deal with the Hamas movement.
