Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal on Friday warned Israel against further strikes on the Gaza Strip, according to an Israel Radio report.

If Israel attacks again, Mashaal was quoted as saying, Gaza will not be defeated, and will instead turn into a "cemetery."

Speaking during a meeting with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman and Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Haririr, the Hamas leader also called on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to restart reconciliation talks between rival Palestinian factions. Hamas and Fatah must "turn over a new page," he said.

Regarding Egypt's construction of a wall along its border with the Strip, Mashaal said, "Walls are built between enemies, not between brothers."
