Hamas's military wing, Izzadin al-Kassam announced in a press conference in Beit Lahiya Saturday evening that its fighters "have defeated the Israeli army." IDF troops began pulling out of northern Gaza late Friday night and Saturday morning following military operations there. During the press conference, the masked Hamas operatives also presented army-issued identification cards belonging to IDF troops. The cards were apparently left behind accidentally by the soldiers due to the intense fighting there.
