Al Qassam website- Gaza- The Hamas Movement held the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) responsible for the military escalation that took place south of Gaza borders on Friday leading to the killing of one Palestinian resistance fighter and one Israeli soldier.

In a press statement to Quds Press, senior Hamas official and lawmaker Mushir Al-Masri stressed that the Palestinian people have the right to defend themselves against any Israeli military incursions and attacks.

Masri said Israel's threats would never scare the Palestinians in Gaza who have the right to defend and repel Israel's incursions and military operations inside their territory.

"The truce is still effective and it is part of a national consensus, so any confrontation with the occupation would be certainly in the framework of a national agreement on the basis of considering the higher national interest of our people," the Hamas official affirmed.

For its part, the resistance committees blessed the Palestinian counterattack against an Israeli military post east of Khan Younis city on Friday.

The resistance committees warned Israel of the consequences of committing any follies against Gaza, and stressed that the resistance would not be watching the Israeli violations in Gaza and would respond strongly.
