“We reassure our prisoners that any coming deal will not happen without the release of those whom the enemy insisted on not freeing,” spokesman for the Brigades Abu Obeida told a news conference on Thursday on the first anniversary of the prisoner swap deal.
The spokesman said the last swap deal disturbed Israel’s calculations and dispelled its illusions.
He stressed that Al-Qassam Brigades would always remain caring for its people and their national cause, especially the issue of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.
In another press release issued on the anniversary and posted on its website, Al-Qassam Brigades said the liberation of prisoners is one of the defining moments in the history of the Palestinian people and their struggle against the occupation.
“Without struggle and resistance, the rest of our prisoners will never be free, so our people has the right to celebrate and consider this event a historical turning point made by them and their valiant resistance,” the Brigades underlined.
