"Al-Qassam Brigades is completely and fully ready to confront any new Israeli aggression whatever it is and at any time," Abu Obeida said. "We don't have in our dictionary an expression called retreat or being defeated."

Meanwhile, Abu Ahmad, spokesman for Jihad's armed wing Saraya al-Quds, told Xinhua that Israel exaggerates the fact when it says that the Palestinian groups of resistance have sophisticated kinds of weapons "in order to justify its military operations against us. It is a psychological war."

"We believe that the enemy is not willing to open a new front of war with the Gaza Strip for many reasons, one of them is that it faces lots of troubles. The Israeli enemy is also facing the world's criticism due to settlement and the siege imposed on Gaza, " Abu Ahmed said.

Despite the ongoing escalation and threats, Hamas began a series of contacts with leaders of the factions to secure a ceasefire with Israel, mainly in the borderline areas between the Gaza Strip and Israel, and to refrain from firing rockets and mortars at Israel.
