Israeli Intelligence Minister: Hamas Restored Calm to Gaza after Warnings from Egypt

Israeli Intelligence Minister: Hamas Restored Calm to Gaza after Warnings from Egypt

Al-Zahar also boasted in the interview of Hamas's weaponry and military capabilities.

In the headquarters of the Egyptian intelligence Haniyeh made clear that, if the situation continues to deteriorate, Israel will go to the targeted killings of Hamas leaders with the acquiescence of Egypt and other Arab countries, which in this case will be limited to declarative protest.

".when we talk about "peaceful resistance" we are deceiving the public", Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar unabashedly pronounced in an interview with Al-Jazeera. "This is peaceful resistance bolstered by a military force and by security agencies, and enjoying tremendous popular support".

"This is not peaceful resistance", al-Zahhar said.

Since March 30, Palestinians have been holding mass rallies near the Gaza Strip border, known as the Great March of Return. "Israel, like any other country, can not allow this to happen".

Around 40,000 Palestinians participated in the riots on Monday, when the U.S. opened its embassy in Jerusalem.

Only later, after the condemnations had been issued by leaders and governments around the world, did Islamic Jihad and Hamas, two prominent terror groups based in Gaza, admit that at least 13 of those killed were members of their organizations.

He accused Hamas of war crimes, claiming the movement used a mob of rioters to enter Israel for the objective of conducting attacks and kidnapping Israeli citizens.

United Nations chief António Guterres said on Tuesday he was "profoundly alarmed and concerned by the sharp escalation of violence and the number of Palestinians killed and injured in the Gaza protests".

Predictably, global opinion turned against Israel for defending itself from Hamas's deceptive tactics, with broadcasts referring to a "massacre" of "innocent protesters".

"Let them wait for our big push", he said at a protest east of Khan Younis.
