Exiled Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal on Friday warned Israel against continuing its military operation in Gaza. A videotape of Mashaal speaking was aired on Al-Jazeera Friday evening, where he said to Israeli leaders, "The blood of Gaza is the quickest way to bring about the end of your political lives." "To Israeli soldiers I say: A black fate awaits you if you invade Gaza. We're sure of our victory, as we've prepared a better battle, and as Allah is on our side," the tape showed him saying.
