In fear of Hamas response: Israel to strengthen security around ministers
Israel's secret services have ordered security tightened around several Israeli ministers, fearing that Hamas would follow through on its threats to revenge Israel's latest assassinations, Israel's Army Radio reported on Tuesday.
In the latest Israeli raid, helicopters fired four missiles at a car in Gaza City on Monday, killing two Hamas activists.
Following this attack, top Hamas official in the Gaza Strip, Abdel Aziz Rantisi vowed revenge for the killings.
Hamas' military wing, Izz a-Din al Qassam Brigades affirmed after Monday's attack that the retaliation to "Zionist crimes" would take place soon and that "the march of Jihad would continue until elimination of the Zionist occupation from Palestinian lands and holy shrines."(Albawaba.com)
