Field developments occurred in the Gaza Strip after satellite images showed the absence of military vehicles in the towns of Beit Hanoun and Beit Lahia in the north, amid Israeli concern about the return of civilian control of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the northern sector.

In this context, military and strategic expert Major General Fayez Al-Duwairi pointed out that these developments confirm that the Israeli ground campaign and the insane bombing it included did not succeed in achieving the goals of the war on Gaza.

He added that Tel Aviv has begun to be convinced of "what we have said in our analysis since the beginning of the war," indicating that the Al-Qassam Brigades - the military wing of Hamas - will not be defeated, will not raise the white flag, are capable of continuing the battle, and can bear it despite the losses they have suffered.

In turn, the American channel "NBC" reported that the administration of US President Joe Biden is considering slowing down the sending of weapons to Israel to pressure its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to reduce the attack on Gaza.

In this context, Al-Duwairi said in his analysis to Al-Jazeera that - if these reports are true - there will be a delay in some munitions because Israel is suffering from this matter in light of the possibility of a war breaking out on the northern front with the Lebanese Hezbollah, in addition to the fact that the occupation forces resorted to munitions in Exploding homes and residential squares along the eastern strip of the Strip.

He pointed out that the continued American support “is what enables Netanyahu to adopt the approach he always talks about,” regarding eliminating Hamas and restoring Israeli prisoners, pointing to the American military bridge to Tel Aviv, which exceeded 300 cargo planes and 20 weapons ships, according to the latest figures published a month ago.

In turn, the American newspaper "Wall Street Journal" quoted - from American and Israeli officials - that about 80% of Hamas's tunnels in the Gaza Strip are still intact after weeks of attempts to destroy them by Israel.

Al-Duwairi commented on this information that all means were used to destroy the Gaza tunnels, such as installing water pumps in the Mediterranean Sea and they began the process of flooding them, but they did not succeed, attributing this to the fact that the tunnel network was not built according to the theory of intersecting vessels.

He also said that the occupation army resorted to poisonous gases - according to the Israeli media - as the bodies of Israeli soldiers who were prisoners were transported in one of the tunnels, and it turned out that at least one of them was killed by poisonous gases.
