Hamas sends text messages to Israeli cell phones

Organization makes original use of technology to warn Israelis of dire results unless Gaza offensive comes to a halt

Psychological warfare? Dozens of Israelis received text messages form Hamas Thursday morning, stammeringly warning them that the offensive in Gaza will only bring about massive rocket fire on Israel.


The message read: "Rockets on all cities, shelters not protect, Qassam rocket, Hamas." A source in Hamas military wing confirmed the new tactic, adding that Hamas wants to warn the Israeli public against a future escalation in Gaza.


Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) Spokesman Abu Abir said that the Palestinian organizations have a few surprises in store for the Israelis, and not just military-wise.

The message 


"Telephone messages and breaching the enemy's radio frequencies are just some of the surprises we have for the Israeli side. You will be very surprised by our military and technological capabilities."


Abu Abir then warned against a ground incursion into Gaza: "The massacre inflicted on the Israeli tanks in the Second Lebanon War will repeat itself in the Strip. Israel has been defeated, and bombing empty government buildings just indicated its distress."


The Israel Air Force strikes on Gaza, he added, "indicate nothing but their frustration over failing to target the military and people they were after. It is a sign that the resistance is winning."
