Hamas' West Bank ambitions alive and well

From Ma'an:
The military wing of Hamas, the Al-Qassam Brigades, says it is attempting to regroup in the West Bank and resume its resistance of the Israeli occupation.

"Nobody will be able to uproot resistance, and if they affect us, that will not last long … The Mujahidin [religious combatants] of Al-Qassam Brigades will remain positioned in their bunkers, protecting the Gaza borders during the central festival commemorating Hamas' 22nd anniversary," the group's spokesman Abu Ubayda also told reporters on Sunday.
Meanwhile, another Hamas member has managed to get himself killed in Gaza last Friday while doing a "Jihad task."
