Hamas's military wing, the Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, is attempting to re-launch its mobile application. The app enables Android cell phone users to access content released by the group as part of its outreach effort in its war against Israel.

In a Telegram post on February 27, 2024,[1] the Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades shared a download link for the app, writing: "Download now the trial version of the application for Android devices, so you can follow the news of the Martyr Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades."

The download link does not function, as of this report. Additionally, the app is not listed on the Google Play Store.

The Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades previously announced the release of the same mobile application in October 2023.[2] At the time, the group shared a poster promoting the launch of the new app, which also had functionality issues.
