Hamas says that it is now in a state of “open war” indefinitely with Israel after the killing of the Hamas commander Ahmed Jabari by an Israeli airstrike.
The assassination has “opened the gates of hell,” the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, were quoted by AFP as saying.
“The occupation committed a dangerous crime and crossed all the red lines, which is considered a declaration of war,”he said in a statement. Hamas vowed to “continue the path of resistance.”
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has called for an immediate Arab League meeting in response to Wednesday’s attack.
