A senior military Israeli officer has warned Hamas they have “opened the gates of hell” as Israeli forces are preparing a ground attack in the Gaza Strip.

Fighting is ongoing on the ground in southern Israel and according to Egyptian negotiators, they have notified Israel that if the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) launch a ground counteroffensive then the leader of Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah will order thousands of his fighters into the war.

The Israeli National Security Council has now “approved” for ground operations “to begin in the Gaza Strip” and there is now a “very high degree of probability” Hezbollah will join the conflict which will be a major and serious escalation of the war.

Visegrad 24 and Jason Jay Smart who is a correspondent for the Kyiv Post has said that heavily armed Iranian backed “Hezbollah terrorists” are descending “onto the border of northern Israel” Lebanon.

Adding that the Israeli authorities have said that the “fighting may take days to end.” Visegrad 24 has also claimed that the Hezbollah fighter are “arriving on motorcycles to the Lebanese-Israeli border” and that “Israel has already started firing at them.”

Iran’s Foreign Ministry has said that Hamas attacking Israel shows Palestinians have increased “confidence,” he told ISNA news agency.

ISNA quoted the spokesperson Nasser Kanaani “In this operation, the element of surprise and other combined methods were used, which show the Palestinian people’s confidence in the face of the occupiers.”

Iranian State news agency IRNA said the attacks by Hamas “proved that the Zionist regime is more vulnerable than ever and that the initiative is in the hands of Palestinian youth.”

The Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories or COGAT, Major General Ghasan Alyan has publicly warned Hamas, he said, “I want to say one thing.

“Hams has opened the gates of hell into the Gaza Strip, Hamas made the decision and Hamas will bear the responsibility and pay for its deeds.”

COGAT is a branch of the Israeli Ministry of Defence who coordinates between the IDF, international groups, the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government.

A spokesperson for Israel’s Defence Forces (IDF) has told Sky News on Saturday afternoon that as we speak fighting is ongoing.

Speaking from Tel Aviv, Lieutenant Colonel Richard Hecht said the IDF are trying to stop the attack “without having our civilians killed.”

“The IDF does not kill intentionally civilians. We have had a severe morning which started off with multiple salvos coming into the state, firing sporadically to kill anyone,” he said.

He added, “We want all people that came into Israel to be dead, that’s our goal.

“I’m not going to be nice about it. We are engaging in fire with these terrorists that came through.

“If someone surrenders that is a different ball game, but right now they’re firing at us.”

He then said that “There are families hiding in houses, people have been abducted, people have been killed… they went after our civilians surrounding Gaza.”
