The Hamas terror group threatened on Thursday to escalate violence against Israel, after Israeli forces launched a large-scale anti-terror operation in the West Bank in response to a string of attacks in the last two weeks that have left 11 Israelis dead. Three Palestinian gunmen were killed in a firefight with Israeli troops Thursday when commandos entered the Palestinian city of Jenin in a rare daytime raid and dozens more were arrested, the army said in a statement.

Palestinian Authority health officials reported two deaths and 14 wounded in the clashes. A source involved in the matter later told The Times of Israel that indeed only two deaths had been confirmed, however, another two Palestinians were brain-dead, but still on life support.

“The continuous crimes of the occupation portend a total explosion, which will be still more powerful and more painful and miserable [than those that preceded] and which our people will join in every part of our occupied land,” the Gaza-based terror group said in a statement. Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, threatened to meet “escalation with escalation” and warned of a “comprehensive explosion.”
