GAZA, (PIC)– Minister of Israel’s internal security Yitzhak Aharonovich threatened to deal a painful strike to Hamas Movement in response to the wave of counterattacks launched by the Palestinian resistance lately.

Aharonovich made his threats on Saturday evening during a visit to a house hit by a grad missile in Beersheba city, which led to the killing of two Jewish settlers and the injury of ten others.

“Israel will strike Hamas painfully and things will be clearer in the next few days,” he stated.

A number of right-wing Knesset members also called for responding to Beersheba attack by assassinating Hamas leaders, especially premier Ismail Haneyya and political leader Khaled Mashaal, and reinvading Gaza.

Israeli security officials held Hamas and its armed wing Al-Qassam Brigades fully responsible for Beersheba attack and demanded an immediate military response.

Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper stated for its part that the Israeli security cabinet held on Saturday an urgent meeting to discuss the ways to escalate the military action against the Palestinian resistance in Gaza.

A reporter for Israel’s channel two said the Israeli army moved its tanks to Gaza borders following the military escalation, which he described as dangerous, in the area to the south of the 1948 occupied lands.

Palestinian resistance fighters were widely deployed along the borderline of Gaza in anticipation of any Israeli military moves into the Strip, according to eyewitnesses.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all?
