With regard to Israeli suggestions of bringing international forces to control the borders of the Gaza Strip, the spokesperson said, "the Palestinian people have responded to that idea, and any international force will be dealt with as an occupation force."
Abu Zuhri also responed to high-ranking Israeli officials' calls to assassinate Hamas leaders in retaliation for Monday's bombing in the Israeli city of Dimona, for which Hamas has claimed responsibility. He said these threats "do not scare [Hamas]," and that the cost of such "follies" will be high.
