Hamas has warned that it will burn Israeli-occupied cities to the ground with “massive missile strikes” if the regime in Tel Aviv acts on its threats to assassinate any of the leaders of the Palestinian resistance group.
According to Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen television network, Hamas told Egyptian mediators that it will not remain indifferent to the Israeli regime’s threats to assassinate its leaders, noting that “the price of such foolishness is known to the enemy.”
“We will burn the cities in [the country’s] center and launch missiles at Tel Aviv and Gush Dan if Israel acts on its threats, those of which surpasses the enemy’s imagination,” Abu Ubaida, spokesman for the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the resistance movement, warned on Saturday.
Israeli media figures have been calling for the assassination of top Hamas officials, namely Yahya Sinwar, the leader of the resistance group in the Gaza Strip, in the aftermath of a stabbing attack in the central city of Elad on Thursday night.
Some of them even took those threats to social media, openly calling for Sinwar’s assassination and wishing that he had instead died while he was in prison.
Extremist member of the Knesset Itamar Ben-Gvir called for bombing the house of Sinwar.
“The Air Force planes must now launch missiles at the house of Yahya Sinwar, who called for attacks with weapons and axes, and to assassinate him,” Ben-Gvir said.
