Hamas statement on foreign hostages

In his video message, Qassam Brigades spokesman Abu Ubeyde spoke of Israeli and foreign prisoners held in the Gaza Strip, which is under the Israeli blockade.

Abu Ubeyde denied Israel’s claim that he had saved a soldier through a ground operation, stating that “it is not possible for Israel to reach a prisoner held by Izzeddin Qassam” and suggesting that he could be one of the prisoners held by other groups. or individuals in the Gaza Strip.

Abu Ubeida defended his opinion that “if Benjamin Netanyahu brags and celebrates the release of a prisoner after a month of war, it will take him 20 years to save the remaining prisoners in Gaza by this method.”


In a statement issued on October 16, the Qassam Brigades reported that they had between 200 and 250 prisoners, including high-ranking military personnel.
