The Hamas movement, which controls Gaza, warned Israel on Monday from attacking the Gaza strip.

The statement was in response to Israeli media reports that Israel will resume its attacks on the Palestinian coastal region if Palestinian resistance groups fire home made shells at nearby Israeli areas.

The Al Qassam brigades’ spokesman declared that home made shells recently fired from Gaza are based on decisions by individuals and not part of the resistance.

The Al Qassam brigades said that they will attack if Israel does so and accused Israel of violating the truce terms.

The Israeli online daily Haaretz reported that the Israeli army will respond to every home-made shell attack by a series of military attacks.

Israel and Hamas have reached a truce deal mediated by Egypt last month, in which Hamas will stop home made shell fire from Gaza, while Israel will end the 12 month long siege on Gaza.
