A spokesman for the Popular Resistance Committees in Gaza, Abu Mujahed, warned Israel on Thursday evening against any broad-scale operations in the area. In Abu Mujahed's words, such an operation would not reach kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit even if the IDF wiped out everyone living in the Gaza Strip. Earlier, Abu Ubaida, spokesman for Hamas's armed wing, Izzadin al-Kassam, declared that Hamas would avenge the deaths of the six Palestinians who were killed by the IDF near Khan Yunis overnight Wednesday. Ubaida said that "in light of the atrocious crimes in Khan Yunis and in the northern Gaza Strip, we will shell and strike everywhere, north and south. Our reaction will be so powerful, it will shake the earth. The enemy can wait patiently for our actions."
