Hamas says it’ll respond if Israel strikes civilian structures in Gaza

As the Israeli military gears up for an expected air offensive in the Gaza Strip, Hamas’s armed wing warns that it will respond should civilian homes or infrastructure be damaged.

“We warn the Zionist enemy that if it strikes civilian installations or homes belong to our people in Gaza, our response will be strong and painful and beyond the enemy’s expectations,” a spokesperson for the Izz al-Din al-Qassam brigades says.
