Hamas vows to keep firing rockets at Israel, kidnap soldiers

January 5, 2009 16:41

Hamas terrorists will fire more rockets deeper into Israel, a spokesman for the group's military wing said Monday. The spokesman's face was covered by a trademark red mask and he was identified by a nom de guerre, Abu Obeida. Appearing on on Hamas' Al Aqsa TV on Monday, he said in a warning to IDF ground forces that "we prepared for you thousands of mighty fighters, who wait for you in every street and every alleyway." Abu Obeida stood before a map of Israel with crosses marking previous areas hit by Hamas rockets, and circles for areas Hamas intends to hit. Hamas has held IDF soldier Gilad Schalit captive for over two years, and Abu Obeida says the group plans to snatch more Israeli forces.
