An Occupying Soldier Dies in Nablus as Palestinian Resistance Operations Continue

While the 'central front' of the Zionist war for Greater Israel has shifted to Lebanon as a consequence of its barbaric blitzkrieg there, the Palestinian Resistance continues in response to the collective punishment of those in and around occupied Gaza.

What many have lost sight of as the regional stakes have risen over the last three weeks is that Apartheid Israel could have averted this crisis in its infancy had it used the nearly 10,000 Palestinian political prisoners held in Zionist dungeons and concentration camps to negotiate the release of the one Zionist soldier captured in the late-June military operation.

They chose otherwise.

As a consequence of that decision, Hizbullah entered the scene militarily and - with its powerful arsenal and expansive political infrastructure - changed the equation Apartheid Israel could not have imagined. And, while the cable news networks have focused like a laser on this expanded conflict, with equal rigor they ignore the clockwork-like Palestinian Resistance that continues to strike Apartheid Israel in Palestine proper.

Hamas's military wing, the Izzedine Al Qassam Brigades, announced on Monday that they had launched a successful operation in which it fired an a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) at a bulldozer injuring several occupier soldiers near the agricultural collage in Beit Hanoun on Sunday afternoon. The same organization on Monday launched two rockets into the Zionist-occupied Jim Crow city Ashkelon, hitting hit a power station.

Also in occupied Gaza, Ma'an reported that the PRC's military wing - The An Nasser Salah Addin Brigades - "launched a rocket-propelled grenade into an Israeli Special Force... in Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip on Monday afternoon." The report continues, noting that, "the Brigades said that one of their groups clashed with the Israeli Special Force and they hit the soldiers with the grenade. Israel recognized the injury of six Israeli soldiers."

Finally, the pro-Apartheid Jerusalem Post reported on Monday that a bomb was thrown at a Zionist patrol in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus in an operation undertaken by the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades - Fatah's armed wing. The attack killed one Zionist soldier and wounded five more.

Each fraction independently announced that their operations came in response to Apartheid Israel's continuing carpet bombing in the Gaza Strip that has already resulted in the death of nearly 200 Palestinians, including many unarmed civilians.

The two fronts on which Apartheid Israel now finds itself engaged can no longer be separated. Not only does the Resistance in Lebanon and the Resistance in Palestine have a common enemy - Apartheid Israel - and a common struggle, but they now find themselves unified by a common strategy for achieving their common goal - liberation from Zionist occupation.
