Hamas denies responsibility for attack near Eilat
Hamas denies responsibility for attack near Eilat
[ 18/08/2011 - 06:55 PM ]

GAZA, (PIC)-- Hamas denied responsibility for the attack on two Israeli buses, carrying soldiers, near Eilat on Thursday morning that left seven killed and 20 others wounded.

The movement said in a statement that it was not her policy to use lands of other countries to launch attacks on Israeli targets. Israel said that the attackers came from Gaza via the Egyptian territory.

Hamas, however, said that it would be at the forefront of defenders of Gaza in the event Israel ventured to attack it as threatened by its war minister Ehud Barak.

It blamed Israeli atrocities against Palestinian people and holy shrines especially during the holy month of Ramadan provoked millions of Muslims into retaliating to such crimes.

Hamas appealed to the Arab and Islamic countries, the free people of the world, and the international community to shoulder their responsibility toward the Israeli threats against Gaza and its civilian population.

For his part, Abu Obaida, the spokesman for Hamas’s armed wing the Qassam Brigades, warned that the armed wing would strongly retaliate to any aggression on the Strip.

Dr. Salah Al-Bardawil, a Hamas leader, told the PIC that his movement adopts the clear strategy of not using lands of other countries to resist the occupation.

He said that Israel was trying to evade its internal crises by attacking Gaza, adding that his movement would not remain arms folded vis-à-vis any aggression.
