Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar on Monday threatened that his group would fire rockets at Israel for six months continuously if the blockade on the Gaza Strip continues.
Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar said in a speech on Monday that, “we have a military force in the [Gaza] Strip that the enemy is making a big deal for. We have hundreds of kilometers of tunnels, hundreds of control rooms above and below the ground, thousands of anti-tank missiles and thousands of mortar shells.” He added that, “we can turn the enemy cities into ghost towns if they decide to attack us.”
According to him, what would not happen with words would happen with fire and weapons. “The whole world must know that in Gaza there are about 70,000 armed young men from all the Palestinian factions, and we have young people who believe in the Palestinian cause and [will] achieve the purpose of the people,” he said.
Sinwar continued: “We saw that the Zionist enemy was ruled by an extreme Right, seizing the opportunity to make Al Aqsa Mosque Jewish and destroy its foundations from within.” He noted that, “the US administration moved its embassy to Jerusalem and declared it the capital of the occupying entity and there were leaks from the century deal, which meant pushing the Palestinian issue.”
