DAMASCUS, (PIC)-- Israel is planning a large scale incursion into the Gaza Strip in coordination with the PA chief Mahmoud Abbas, Ahmed Jibril, the secretary general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command, asserted.

Jibril speaking to Quds Press quoted western sources as saying that Israel would invade the Strip within the coming few weeks and would assassinate senior political and military leaders of Hamas. He added that Abbas would be allowed to condemn the incursion.

The western sources, which refused to disclose their identity, said that the aggression would take place within 20 days at the most, the PFLP-GC leader underlined.

He said that Egyptian and international forces would then enter Gaza to protect Abbas, and added that the Israelis hope that such an act would terrorize Syria and Hizbullah.

Jibril warned the Israelis that Gaza would turn into a graveyard for their soldiers.
