Hamas warns Israel over Jerusalem attacks


The armed wing of the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, has issued a warning to Israel over its attacks against Palestinian residents in occupied East Jerusalem, saying Israel will pay a ‘heavy price’ for its actions.

‘The Qassam Brigades will not stand idly by in the face of attacks on the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood,’ Mohammed Deif, the brigades commander, said in a written statement on Tuesday night.

They will pay a heavy price if the aggression against our people in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood does not stop immediately,’ he said, adding they are closely following developments.

Deif, who has been on Israel’s wanted list for years, praised the ‘steadfast people’ in Sheikh Jarrah, who are facing imminent forced displacement from their homes.—Agencies
