The Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military wing, threatened Israel on Thursday and announced that the Jewish State will soon pay the price for its crimes against Gaza, Al-Aqsa and the Arab prisoners.
The terror group clarified in a statement that its members will not stand by without responding to what is happening to Palestinian Authority Arabs.
“The occupation must know that any new aggression against our people will bring it closer to the moment of judgment, during which it will pay a high price for its crimes,” said the group.
The statement added, “The Zionist aggression against our people in Gaza continues despite the quiet and restraint which the Palestinian resistance groups exhibit in order to maintain national interest.” In addition, said the statement, the Israeli leadership ignores the demands of hunger striking prisoners.
One such hunger striking prisoner is Islamic Jihad leader Khader Adnan, whose lawyer said this week he will appeal his client's administrative detention order to Israel's Supreme Court.
Adnan has been on a hunger strike for 61 days to protest his incarceration by Israeli security officials.
The Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades also claimed that the IDF has recently escalated its aggression in Gaza and hit the “Palestinian resistance sites”, a fact which resulted in the hurting of six innocent civilians on Wednesday night.
The statement was likely referring to the IAF strike on two centers of terrorist activity in northern and central Gaza. The attack came after terrorists from Gaza fired at least four rockets at southern Israel.
