The Hamas terror group in Gaza threatened Israel on Tuesday over tensions in East Jerusalem as a number of Palestinian families face eviction as part of an ongoing effort by right-wing Israelis to take control of homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. In a rare public statement from Mohammed Deif, the elusive head of Hamas’s armed wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas warned Israel would pay a “heavy price” if the evictions went ahead. “I salute our steadfast Palestinians at Sheikh Jarrah in occupied Jerusalem; The resistance leadership and al-Qassam are watching closely what is happening in the neighborhood,” Deif said. “This is our final warning; If the aggression against our people in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood does not stop immediately, we will not stand idly by and the occupation will pay a heavy price,” he warned.
