Hamas military wing: Israeli forces have aggressive plans for Gaza

Oct. 8, 2008 1:24 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 8, 2008 1:24 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - Hamas's military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades, said on Tuesday that Israeli forces have plans for an aggressive assault on the Gaza Strip.

A spokesperson for the group claimed that increased surveillance of Israeli troops holding drills near the border, sky and sea indicates the army is planning a major assault.

Brigades Spokesman Abu Ubayda said: "To say these drills are for defensive purposes is ridiculous-since when has the occupation taken defensive steps?"

"These drills, in fact, reveal what they prepare for the coming days. They enhance the Palestinian resistance's right to train and prepare for the coming stage, despite the ceasefire," he said.

Ubayda added that the Brigades would inflict a heavy toll on Israeli soldiers if they attempted to cross into Gaza, and insisted that the armed movement would never cease its activities until Palestinians live free from occupation.

On Monday, Israeli forces carried out a military drill along the border with Gaza. An Israeli military spokesperson said the drill was conducted for defensive purposes.
