Hamas TV: have no mercy on any Israeli civilian
Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas) interviewed Sheikh Bassam Kayed, head of the Association of Palestinian Religious Scholars in Lebanon
Kayyed: "My wish for the Jihad fighters, if they hear these words, is that they enter the settlements (i.e., towns in southern Israel) - blood for blood, killing for killing, destruction for destruction and massacre for massacre. Defeat them! Although we massacred their soldiers, we say [about Israeli civilians]: Son of Al-Qassam [Hamas fighter], son of Islam, they are all soldiers; they are all invaders; they are all criminals; have no mercy on any of them. Son of Islam, ignore the whole world that says they are civilians."
