If Israel Strikes Iran Hamas Will Attack
Despite initial reports that Hamas intends to stay out of any conflict between Israel and Iran, Hamas is now threatening severe retaliation if any such war begins.
Hamas Spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum originally said that the organization’s effort is devoted to the Palestinian issue, and that it does not have the resources to be “part of any regional war,” according to reports.
However, another top Hamas official, Mahmoud Zahar, rejected this statement, threatening to retaliate with “utmost power,” if Israel takes any military action against Iran. He also said Hamas would target “whoever is helping” Israel in such an action, Haaretz reported.
