Gaza resistance fiercely holds back Israeli army in Jabalia

TEHRAN, May 13 (MNA) – Intense clashes raged for a third straight day on 13 May between Palestinian resistance fighters and the Israeli army in northern Gaza's Jabalia refugee camp.

Local reports say Israeli tanks and troops have been attempting to push deeper into the eastern and central parts of the camp but face intense resistance by fighters from Hamas' Qassam Brigades and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad's (PIJ) Quds Brigades, the Cradle online news magazine said.

As the ground battles rage, Israeli jets have been dropping bombs on crowded residential areas within the refugee camp as troops have reportedly opened fire on ambulances trying to reach the wounded.

The army is also trying to invade schools sheltering displaced Palestinians, forcing hundreds to flee for their lives.

“Israeli occupation forces have stormed shelters for the displaced in Jabalia refugee camp, which is currently hosting thousands of displaced residents … They entered the school by bulldozing the walls and forcing their way in,” Palestinian journalist Hossam Shabat reports from Jabalia.

Tel Aviv regime has also intensified attacks on Gaza City, killing at least three Palestinians in the Sabra neighborhood and another in the Shujayea neighborhood on Monday. At the same time, the Israeli army is expanding its siege of southern Gaza's Rafah, intensifying airstrikes and ordering the immediate evacuation of Kuwaiti Hospital, raising concerns the troops are about to lay siege to yet another Palestinian medical center.
