Hamas terror group leader visits the rubble of his Gaza office: “Israel got the message”
Hamas terror group leader Ismail Haniyeh emerged from his underground bunker to make his first public appearance this afternoon since a new flare-up in tensions between Israel and Gaza.
resistance [Muslim terror groups] has made its statement and Israel understood the message,” Haniyeh said near the rubble of his Gaza office, which was destroyed in an Israeli airstrike on Tuesday.
“When you arrive at the location that used to be your headquarters, look right, look left,” teased Avichay Adraee, head of the Arab media division of the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.
“Is it right to endanger the lives of the residents of the Gaza Strip? Are Yahya Sinwar and Mohammed Deif putting you in a place that neither you nor the residents of Gaza want to be,” Adraee added “Don’t forget to let us know where your new office is.”
After a night of rockets at Ashkelon and strikes on Hamas terror targets, additional artillery units, tanks, and military hardware headed to southern Israel overnight as the IDF build-up continues for a violent weekend, coinciding with the first anniversary of the border riots and a possible operation on the Gaza border.
