"We have a long arm. You will soon [experience] strikes similar to those we made in Tel Aviv, Netanya and Eilat," Abu Hamza said in a message to residents of those towns broadcasted on Hamas television and warned that his organization would step up Kassam attacks on Sderot, Ashkelon, Yad Mordechai and Netivot.
