Hamas Gaza leader: If Israel spills too much blood we will be forced to respond

Hamas's leader in Gaza Yahya Sinwar said that his group has agreed with Egypt to not "deteriorate the situation in the strip to the point of an armed conflict" and that marches will remain a street-level protest.

 

In his first interview since the riots began, Sinwar told Al Jazeera that his group will continue "the measures of popular uprising and do everything in our power to not deteriorate to armed resistance, but if Israel spills a lot of blood we will be forced to respond militarily."
