Hamas's military wing, the Izzadin Kassam Brigades, released a statement Saturday warning Israel over the recent escalation of violence in Gaza, saying if Israeli airstrikes continue "we are ready to smash [Israel's] arrogance."

Israeli attacks, a statement published online said, are a crime which Hamas cannot remain silent about and vowed a "proper" response.

The statement blamed Israeli airstrikes for the death of a child near the Gazan city of Khan Yunis Saturday. The IDF denied it had launched any strikes at the time the child was killed.

A relative lull in violence was broken Friday night as rockets rained down on southern Israel and the IAF carried out several air strikes on the Gaza Strip. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the recent round of rockets.
