Hamas military wing commander Mohammed Deif on Saturday said to Israel, "You will disappear and Palestine will remain ours," adding that Hamas will not stop its struggle against Israel until it ceases to exist.

On Friday, another Hamas leader, Mahmoud Zahar, said the group does not want an escalation in fighting with Israel despite a rise in violence in recent weeks.

Zahar said Hamas is "committed to the calm" that has largely held since Operation Cast Lead in the coastal strip nearly two years ago.
