Yahya Al-Sinwar, the new leader of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement, ” Hamas” announced that Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip are mobilizing at least 70,000 fighters under their brigades, warning Israel not to “commit any folly.”

“Let the whole world know that there are about 70,000 young people at gunpoint in the Al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas’ military wing), the Al-Quds Brigades, other armed forces and security agencies,” al-Sinwar said during a meeting organized by the group on Monday with a group of young people in Gaza City, according to AFP.

“If the occupation thinks of entering Gaza, our young people will emerge from the ground with anti-tank missiles manufactured in Gaza and rockets that will turn the occupation cities into ghost towns if the occupation commits folly.”
