UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — A military spokesman said Thursday that the movement has acquired a new missile that has contributed to the development of its military capabilities and that it used it during the recent military confrontation with Israel.

The military spokesman of the Islamic Jihad Abu Hamza said that “the introduction of the resistance (Badr 3) under the service confirms beyond any doubt about the remarkable development in the capabilities of military manufacturing in the Al-Quds Brigades.”

He added that “the development of the capabilities of military manufacturing would not have been support for the axis of resistance and headed by the Islamic Republic of Iran, which has left us days in all areas.”

Abu Hamza stressed the coordination between Al-Quds Brigades and Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, “before the escalation, as well as the coordination and joint work that was between them at the level of the event.”

He said that “from the first moment of the cessation of the battle began to work to compensate for what was launched from the rocket launchers and will be within days in the custody of the missile unit and a bomb in its barracks.”

Palestinian factions announced they had reached a ceasefire with Israel brokered by Egypt at dawn on Monday after the military confrontation that broke out on Saturday between the two sides and was considered the most dangerous since the 2014 war.

During the confrontation, some 690 rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip towards Israeli territory, according to the Israeli army, which indicated that Israeli air defenses intercepted more than 240 of them.

During the recent confrontations, 25 Palestinians and four people were killed on the Israeli side.
