GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Hamas’ military wing the al-Qassam Brigades said Tuesday evening that they dedicated the missile attacks on Haifa, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to the Egyptian soldiers who were killed in the October 1973 war.

In a statement, Hamas named the attack “Operation Ramadan the Tenth.”

“Launching an R160 missile at Haifa reflects a qualitative development to the capacities of resistance, and is a source of pride for our people,” said Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri.

The Israeli occupation, he added, must get the message, “otherwise greater things are yet to come.”
