Mayadeen TV Features Gaza Attack Tunnels of the Al-Mujahideen Brigades

Al-Mayadeen TV broadcast a report on the Gaza attack tunnels dug by the Al-Mujahideen Brigades, the military arm of the Palestinian Mujahideen Movement, a group that splintered from Fatah. Abu Aziz, a militant in the brigades' missile unit, told the reporter, who toured one of the tunnels with the camera crew, that "the enemy will be taken by surprise by our missile and mortar capabilities," and Abu Yunis, a spokesman for the brigades, said that the Palestinian resistance "is ready at any moment, day and night, above ground and below ground." The report aired on February 6.

Reporter: "Al-Mayadeen TV visited tunnels of the Al-Mujahideen Brigades, the military arm of the Palestinian Mujahideen Movement. [This report is by] Lana Shaheen."

Lana Shaheen: "The tunnels, the volcanoes of the wrath of the resistance, are equipped and prepared, in the precise time and place. Even in times of calm, their minds and their bodies do not rest for a moment, in the bowels of the earth and above ground. The missiles and shells of the Al-Mujahideen Brigades await the zero hour."

Abu Aziz: "We are ready to confront the occupation with our resolute will and all our might, especially our artillery and missile [capabilities]. The enemy will be taken by surprise by our missile and mortar capabilities."

Lana Shaheen: "In the defense and attack tunnels, which are highly developed both in quantity and in quality, operations continue in order to be prepared to confront any possible aggression. Amid the military maneuvers of the occupation, and its escalating threats against Gaza, the Al-Mujahideen Brigades stress that the Israeli deterrence [ability] has lost its way in the maze of tunnels, which have become the cornerstone of retaliation against any aggression on the part of the occupation army."

Abu Yunis: "The Palestinian resistance has changed the balance of power expected by the Zionist enemy. The Zionist enemy is now conducting maneuvers and training, and the Palestinian resistance will not rest for a single moment. It is ready at any moment, day and night, above ground and below ground."

Lana Shaheen: "A wall above and below ground is being built by Israel along the border, in an effort to eliminate the tunnels, which have become one of the most successful strategic weapons of the resistance. Through them, the resistance fighters have infiltrated the occupation lines, and have captured soldiers. We will return the same way we came, in complete secrecy. We do not know the location or the number of tunnels. What Al-Mayadeen TV was allowed to see is just a drop in the sea, according to the Al-Mujahideen Brigades. What is concealed from view is much greater. From Gaza, this is Lana Shaheen, Al-Mayadeen TV."
