Hamas responded to the escalating situation in the Gaza Strip, following the killing of an IDF soldier on the Gaza border and intensive IDF airstrikes on Hamas targets in the Palestinian coastal enclave, Ynet news reported Friday night.

"We have the right to defend ourselves. [Our] national duty is to defend our people's interests, and establish the deterrence equation according to which bombardment will be met with bombardment," the statement said, according to Ynet.
