Hamas vows to rain rockets on Israel
Senior Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar said on Saturday that Palestinian groups will continue targeting Israel until Israeli troops stop their attacks on the blockaded sliver.
Al-Zahar also stressed that the Palestinian nation will, by no means, recognize the Israeli regime and will continue to resist Israel’s aggressions until all occupied territories are liberated.
The Hamas official added that over the past three months Israeli forces have killed over 45 Palestinians.
This comes as Israeli warplanes launched yet another aerial attack against the Gaza Strip on Thursday.
The airstrikes have continued for the past four days, leaving more than 19 Palestinians dead and over a dozen others injured.
The latest Israeli attacks are among the deadliest since the Tel Aviv regime began the December 2008-January 2009 Gaza War.
Hamas says Tel Aviv has stepped up its aggression against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip due to the recent uprisings and revolutions in Arab states in the Middle East and North Africa.
Meanwhile, in response to the Israeli attacks on Gaza, Palestinian resistance fighters have fired missiles into Israeli towns.
But there have been no reports of any casualties or damage.
The Israeli regime laid an economic siege on the Gaza Strip in June 2007 after Hamas took over the administration of the enclave.
The blockade has had a disastrous impact on the humanitarian and economic situation in the Gaza Strip.
Some 1.5 million people are being denied their basic rights, including the freedom of movement and their rights to appropriate living conditions, work, health and education.
