Quds Brigades calls on Arab, Muslim countries to take up arms against Israel

The Quds Brigades armed wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) says Arab and Muslim countries should take up arms against Israel in a defiant statement carried by its spokesperson Abu Hamza.

“Is it not time for you to mobilise your weapons, following in the footsteps of the free people of Yemen, Lebanon, and Iraq?” he said to countries that “possess armies, planes, and artillery” but have not intervened to stop the war on Gaza.

Abu Hamza also called on Arab and Muslim nations to make the first day of Ramadan – which is in about a week – a day of international support for Gaza.

“Just as you turn to God in prayer and fasting, turn to the land of Israel with weapons,” he told Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, Israeli bombardment of Gaza continues with overnight attacks reported in Rafah, Deir el-Balah and Khan Younis.

At least 30,320 people have been killed and 71,533 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7.
