Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization issued a statement early Wednesday, attempting to justify its renewal of rocket attacks on southern Israel.

“The Resistance has the right to respond to Israeli shelling and not to allow the Occupation to impose new equations,” a Hamas spokesperson said.


The terror group was referring to Israel Defense Force attacks on Tuesday evening carried out against Hamas positions in retaliation for the “explosive condom” balloons that have been flown across the border into southern Israel, attached to homemade bombs and incendiary devices. The flying arson kites and terror condom balloons land in agricultural fields and Israeli forest lands, and set the sites ablaze.

So far, the ongoing arson terror attacks have caused more than $2 million worth of damage and killed countless innocent wildlife.
