He pointed out that in this war, the occupation army entered from the west of Gaza City, contrary to the usual practice of entering from the east, relying on fire dams.
Al-Duwairi added, “Before advancing, he resorted to bombing the targeted area with violent air, land, and sea strikes in order to flatten the ground, as residential buildings would then become vulnerable to collapse. He also expected the tunnel openings to be closed.”
However, according to Al-Duwairi, the occupation army was surprised by fierce resistance from Al-Qassam Brigades The military wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement (agitation) and other resistance factions.
