Hamas says Israel’s ground invasion will have ‘dreadful consequences’


Hamas said Israel's ground incursion into the Gaza Strip that started on Thursday would have “dreadful consequences.”

“It does not scare the Hamas leaders or the Palestinian people,” Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told Reuters. “We warn (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu of the dreadful consequences of such a foolish act.”
