Hamas warns it is 'ready for battle with the occupation’

Hamas is taking Israel’s threats to launch a military operation in the Gaza Strip seriously, Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar said on Saturday.
Warning Israel against launching such an attack, Zahar said that Hamas was ready “for the battle with the occupation.”
Israel did not need any excuse to attack the Strip, such as the firing of rockets at Israeli communities, “because it is doing so continuously through air raids and invasions,” he said.
Zahar, who was speaking at a seminar in the Gaza Strip, said that Hamas has “enough methods to inflict pain on Israel” in case it launched a military operation.
