The warning reportedly came in the wake of a Hamas official telling Gaza media that the terrorist organization would attack the Gaza-Israel border if war broke out between Israel and Hezbollah.

Other terrorist groups in Gaza received a similar warning, according to the report.

A Hamas delegation in Cairo was also reportedly told that if rocket fire from the Gaza Strip did not stop, Egypt would abandon its mediation efforts between Gaza and Israel.
