Hamas threatened on Thursday that unless Israel lifts its blockade on the Gaza Strip, "there will be an explosion," Channel 2 reported

The report cited a statement issued by the spokesman of the Palestinian terrorist group's military wing at an event that presented a model of the Israeli bus that exploded in a bombing in Jerusalem claimed by Hamas last week.

Hamas deputy leader in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh, also spoke at the event and charged that the latest Hamas-claimed terrorist attack proved that the organization had not given up the "resistance option" against Israel.

Thursday's threat came as Israeli Jews were celebrating the culmination of the Passover holiday.
