The National Resistance Brigades, the military-terrorist wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), on Sunday published a video entitled “The Struggle Continues” on the occasion of the third anniversary of the “Israeli aggression against Gaza in the summer of 2014” – a reference to Israel’s counterterrorism Operation Protective Edge.
The organization noted that 25 commanders and fighters from its ranks were killed during the fighting and their death strengthens the determination to continue the path of the struggle.
According to the organization, during the summer of 2017, its fighters fired 443 rockets, 107 Grad rockets and 100 mortar shells towards Israeli communities and IDF positions in southern Israel.
The video also claimed that the organization’s attacks, which included sniper attacks, detonations of explosive devices and the firing of RPGs, killed seven Israeli soldiers and wounded dozens others.
The National Resistance Brigades stressed their determination to continue the struggle for “liberation of the land,” the release of prisoners, the establishment of a Palestinian state and preparations for the next battle with Israel.
They called upon the military wings of other organizations to respond to any violation or aggression on the part of Israel.
DFLP, one of the main factions in the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), last year boasted that it is building underground attack tunnels meant for murdering Israeli civilians and soldiers, similar to the ones built by Hamas.
DFLP is a Communist terror group that was founded in 1969 after having split from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
The group was behind large-scale attacks in the 1970s, including a 1974 terror attack known as the Ma’alot massacre which included a two-day hostage-taking of 115 people – 105 of them children – which ended in the murder of over 25 hostages.
