On January 14, 2023, Russia Today aired a report on the Palestinian Al-Mujahideen Brigades' operations in Gaza. The report showcases the group's rocket manufacturing and tunnel operations. "Aba Anas," the group's spokesman, warned that the issues of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli prisons are a "time bomb," and that if the "Zionist enemy continues with its transgressions in these issues, the situation in occupied Palestine will explode."

Reporter: "The display of military force above ground is an everyday thing in Gaza, but what is more important is what is happening underground. 107mm rockets – which can hit all the [Israeli] settlements near the Gaza Strip – are manufactured here.

"In the past few years, the [Palestinian] factions have doubled their efforts to enhance their military capabilities and to develop their rockets, so that their range would cover the Israeli cities.


"In the past, we descended 60 meters into the attack tunnels of the Al-Quds Brigades. Today, we are touring the attack tunnels of the Al-Mujahideen Brigades, where the military branches are making preparations, as though [the next] war is inevitable. There are many elements that make the factions declare full mobilization, in light of the challenges imposed by the right-wing Israeli government."

Al-Mujahideen Brigades Spokesman: "The issue of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy places, as well as the issue of the prisoners constitute a time-bomb. In case the Zionist enemy continues with its transgressions in these issues the situation in occupied Palestine will explode."


Reporter: "The defensive and attack tunnels play a role in the structure of power of the Palestinian factions in Gaza. They facilitate the movement of the fighters, and are used as weapons depots and rocket-launching pads."
