Hamas' leader in Gaza Yahya Sinewar threatened military escalation with Israel, if there are not enough ventilators for the coronavirus patients in the Gaza Strip.
"When we need respirators, I tell Bennett, we will make six million Israelis unable to breathe," he said in an interview with a Hamas television channel.
He also referred to a possible prisoner exchange deal with Israel: "We are ready to make partial concessions on our prisoners' issue in exchange for Israeli release of elderly prisoners, patients and prisoners as a humanitarian gesture in light of the corona crisis."
