Hamas terrorists are gearing up for Israeli troops to enter the Gaza Strip by holding intensive training sessions.
Izz al-Din al-Qassam, Hamas’ military wing, warned Israel that if it entered Gaza it would suffer major losses.
“We will use weapons the occupation has never known before,” said Abu Ubaida, spokesman of the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades.
According to Abu Ubaida, Israeli military helicopters regularly circle the Strip, and military tanks and other equipment were multiplying daily by the seam line in the east and north. Ubaida said that they are not afraid of threats by Israel’s military and that they were preparing for a wide-scale ground invasion by the IDF.
“The Palestinian resistance is ready to deal with this aggression,” he said, “We will teach the enemy a lesson and send him home disappointed, just like many times before. We have nothing to lose, but this invasion will not be a walk in the park for the enemy. We will turn the Strip into a graveyard for the soldiers of the occupation.”
Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter commented on the terror threats coming from Gaza, saying it is impossible to reach an agreement with the Palestinian Authority as it must first fight terror.
