Al-Jazeera Network (Qatar) aired an audio recorded message by Abu Hamza, the spokesman for the Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, on October 12, 2023, in which he warned of attacks in the West Bank, Israel within the pre-1967 borders, and beyond. He addressed "the miserable Zionists," saying they do not know what Palestinian Islamic Jihad has prepared for them inside Palestine and outside of it. Abu Hamza added: "What you have seen in the Gaza Envelope you will see in other places."
Abu Hamza: "We, at the Al-Quds Brigades and the Palestinian resistance announce, on the fifth day of the heroic Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, that the war is no longer limited to Gaza alone. The enemy has already witnessed our active resistance in the West Bank, which might expand soon into the [pre-1967] occupied areas, and other places, according to the developments on the ground.
"You Zionist lowlifes, the fire is spreading. What you witnessed in the village of Duheira in south Lebanon – the ferocious killing of your officers and brigade commanders – is only a tiny example of the horrors that await you, and the impending nightmare that will destroy your dreams.
"Oh Zionists, what you do not know is what we have prepared for you – outside of Palestine, as well as inside Palestine. What you saw in the Gaza Envelope – you will see in other places, Allah willing."
