Hamas: There Will Be an Explosion Unless Israel Lifts Gaza Blockade

Responsible for last week's Jerusalem bus bombing, the Gaza-based terror group Hamas has continued its threats against the Jewish state. The Jerusalem Post reports that Hamas has now threatened that "there will be an explosion" if Israel does not give in to its demands:

Hamas threatened on Thursday that unless Israel lifts its blockade on the Gaza Strip, "there will be an explosion," Channel 2 reported

The report cited a statement issued by the spokesman of the Palestinian terrorist movement's military wing at an event that presented a model of the Israeli bus that exploded in a bombing in Jerusalem claimed by Hamas last week.

Hamas deputy leader in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh, also spoke at the event and charged that the latest Hamas-claimed terrorist attack proved that the organization had not given up the "resistance option" against Israel.

Thursday's threat came as Israeli Jews were celebrating the culmination of the Passover holiday.
