(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Former Hamas interior minister Fathi Hammad admitted Saturday that the Palestinian terrorist group has been paving a new road near the Israeli border with northern Gaza.
According to Hammad, the road, located southeast of Kibbutz Nahal Oz, was intended for the use of Hamas’s Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades in future conflicts with Israel.
“The road has been secretly built under heavy security and will be used when the time is right for us to launch an attack against our enemy,” Hammad said during a speech in Khan Younis.
“The Zionist occupier will be surprised at Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades’ capabilities in the next military confrontation,” he added. “Since the last round of fighting, Hamas’s military wing has been reinforced. The Zionists haven’t got the slightest inkling of what surprises await them.”
