Hamas warns Israel against targeting Hamas leaders
The military wing of Hamas has warned Israel on Wednesday against targeting any leader of the Islamic movement in Gaza Strip.

"If Hamas leaders are harmed, al-Qassam Brigades will force the Zionists to pay the price from their blood, limps and safety," the group said in a statement sent to the press.

The threat came after reports that Israel was about to launch a large-scale offensive in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip and kill four senior members of the movement, including Ismail Haneya, the former prime minister.

"The brigades take the Israeli intimidation seriously and preparing to respond to them by force," Hamas' armed wing added.

Al-Qassam brigades also said they shelled a military base outside the Gaza Strip with 12 mortars.
