The military and strategic expert, Major General Fayez Al-Duwairi, said that the occupation army withdrew its vehicles and tanks from inside the Gaza Strip before the temporary humanitarian truce took effect, most notably the fear of a repeat of the "Al-Aqsa Flood" operation that took place on the seventh of last October.

During his military analysis of Al-Jazeera, al-Duwairi explained that the occupation withdrew military vehicles to "areas believed to be safe and important in terms of tactical value in order to reposition and facilitate subsequent operations".

The military expert said that it is likely that Israeli vehicles will be withdrawn to the Gaza perimeter area and inside the Gaza Strip near the border fence in order to ensure partial protection and continue the supply process.

It is also likely that the mechanisms inside the Gaza Strip are outside the densely populated built-up areas, "so they may be in some yards and agricultural areas on the outskirts", for fear of repeating the surprise of the seventh of October 2023.

He pointed out that the occupation army would have been within the reach of the fighters of the Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement "Hamas", if it did not withdraw its vehicles, and this step comes within the framework of an attempt to restore combat readiness in the event of a break in the ceasefire.

On the scale of destruction in Gaza, the strategist stressed that what happened there has never happened in history and far exceeds the destruction that befell the cities of Aleppo, Homs, Raqqa and Deir Ezzor in Syria, as well as Mosul and Fallujah in Iraq.

He stressed that the occupation army aimed to "satisfy the desire for criminality", in addition to practicing ethnic cleansing and forced displacement using a policy of systematic destruction.

It is noteworthy that the Qassam Brigades launched on the seventh of last October the operation "Al-Aqsa Flood", where it stormed settlements, barracks and bases of the Gaza envelope, and captured 240 soldiers, officers and settlers in an unprecedented operation in the history of the Palestinian resistance.
