Palestine: Hamas warns half a million will march on Erez

The Jerusalem Post reports that Hamas has threatened to send half a million Palestinians marching toward the Erez border crossing in northern Gaza.

"The next time there is a crisis in the Gaza Strip, Israel will have to face half a million Palestinians who will march toward Erez," said Ahmed Youssef, a senior Hamas official.

"This is not an imaginary scenario and many Palestinians would be prepared to sacrifice their lives."
