Mr/Ms Nuray : Can you tell me what incident quran is talking about in the following two ayas based on your complete knowledge of prophetic biography acquired from Quran only.:

033.026
SHAKIR: And He drove down those of the followers of the Book who backed them from their fortresses and He cast awe into their hearts; some you killed and you took captive another part.

033.027
SHAKIR: And He made you heirs to their land and their dwellings and their property, and (to) a land which you have not yet trodden, and Allah has power over all things.

No you cannot unless you go to sources other than quran . This incident is of Bani Quraiza ,all whose adult males (900+) were beheaded by your kind prophet, all their properties and belongings robbed and and illegally acquired, all their women were distributed among jihadis who raped them the same night. Mohammed who came as mercy to all humanity chose the 19 year old beautiful grieving widow Rehana and took her to bed the same night her husband, brothers and fatherwere beheaded in cold blood by his order by Ali Hamza and other jihadis . Mohammed justified rapes of all captured women by quranic aya 33.50
SHAKIR: O Prophet! surely We have made lawful to you your wives whom you have given their dowries, and those whom your right hand possesses out of those whom Allah has given to you as prisoners of war, and the daughters of your paternal uncles and the daughters of your paternal aunts, and the daughters of your maternal uncles and the daughters of your maternal aunts who fled with you; and a believing woman if she gave herself to the Prophet, if the Prophet desired to marry her-- specially for you, not for the (rest of) believers; We know what We have ordained for them concerning their wives and those whom their right hands possess in order that no blame may attach to you; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
And his obbery by the aya:
008.001
YUSUFALI: They ask thee concerning (things taken as) spoils of war. Say: "(such) spoils are at the disposal of Allah and the Messenger

Here are pastings from hadiths and sira about the above incident. All muslims scholars write about it and try to justify this incident (hadithe quoted partially for brevity)
. Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 447:
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:
Sad said, "Kill their men and take their women and children as captives, "On that the Prophet said, "You have judged according to Allah's Judgment,"
Prophet took Rehana as his share of the booty.

"Sirat e Rasulullah", by Ishaq, pge 466
"Apostle sent Sad b. Zayd Al Ansari with some of the captive women to Najd. He sold them for horses and weapons"
The Prophet recieved 20% of all booty including captured women as his share of booty in accoprdance with following quranic aya.
008.041
YUSUFALI: And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire , a fifth share is assigned to Allah,- and to the Messenger,

"Sirat e Rasulullah" by Ishaq, pge 464
After 800-900 male adults of Bani Quraiza were beheaded in batches, and thrown in trenches dug in Madina, the apostle divided their property, wives and children as booty. . He took Rayhana d. Amr b. Khunafa for himself.
