Israel “broke the rules of the game” by allegedly carrying out an attack against Hamas operative Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in the UAE, Hamas spokesman Mahmoud Al-Zahar reportedly said in a Gaza press conference on Saturday.

Israel Radio quoted Zahar as saying that until now, Hamas had limited its struggled to the Palestinian territories and the Green Line. If wishes to transfer the conflict to the international arena, there will be repercussions, Zahar was quoted by the radio station as saying.

The spokesman added that Hamas was now considering different retaliatory courses of action, among them the possibility of an attack against Israeli targets abroad. He stressed that the organization was fully capable of carrying out such attacks, even though it had so far not chosen to do so.
