Hamas’s military wing vowed Thursday morning that “Israel will pay a high bloody price for its crimes against the Palestinian people,” according to the Palestinian Information Center.

“Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, has put its forces and units on high alert in all areas of the Gaza Strip after three of its fighters were killed in an Israeli artillery attack on a resistance post,” said the report by the Hamas-affiliated news site.

In a statement released on Thursday morning, al-Qassam Brigades urged all “resistance factions participating in the joint operations” to “raise their military readiness to the highest level.”

The Brigades warned that Israel would “pay dearly for its persistence in committing daily crimes against the Palestinian people and their resistance.”

Three terrorists from al-Qassam Brigades were killed and another one was injured when the IDF launched an artillery attack on their observation post east of Gaza city on Wednesday.

Later, one Israeli soldier was reportedly wounded by Palestinian gunfire east of Gaza.
