â€śThe cement wall that the Israeli occupation forces have started to build around the Gaza Strip to prevent the resistanceâ€™s tunnels will not restrict the resistanceâ€™s ability,â€ť the Izz ad-DinÂ Al-Qassam Brigades said in a statement.
â€śThe solutions and experiences by Israel over the past years have amounted to nothing in the face of the resistanceâ€™s tunnels,â€ť it added.
â€śThe occupation is still chasing a delusional mirage,â€ť referring to Israelâ€™s latest announcement that it will build an over and underground cement wall with equipment to detect tunnels.
The wallâ€™s effectiveness was questioned with the Brigades saying that the announcement is a media stunt from Israel to reassure the masses who feel unsafe.
The Israeli occupation forces have begun the construction of a cement wall along the border with Gaza a few weeks ago. It is expected to take a few months to complete. However, many believe that Israel will not be able to complete its construction due to its high cost, according to Israeli commentators.
The Brigadesâ€™ tunnels were used to attack Israeli military outposts on the Gaza border during Israeli assaults on the Strip and many have become a lifeline for besieged Palestinians living in Gaza who are left unable to leave the enclave due to Israelâ€™s crippling decade-long siege.
