Israel engaged in a rare Twitter exchange on Wednesday with Hamas‘ military wing, saying the Jewish state is “here to stay,” hamas-do-converse/” target=”_blank”>The Wall Street Journal first reported.
“Al Qassam Brigades will continue its holy way of struggle & resistance till the liberation of whole Palestine. #Zionists,” Hamas said.
The exchange, however, appeared to come to a sudden end after Hamas‘ account tweeted a picture at Mr. Lerner of an image appearing to depict a deceased Palestinian child under a pile of rubble, supposedly a result of an Israeli strike.
Hamas responded: “We are in mission that aims at restoring our occupied land whatever the cost is.”
Mr. Lerner’s last message to Hamed read, “[O]ur mission is one of safeguarding human life, all human life.”
Hamas then responded with a photo of what it claimed was a deceased Palestinian child buried up to the neck in debris.
“Your mission is to bury the Palestinian children under the rubble of their houses,” the tweet read.
