GAZA CITY (AFP) -One of Israel”s most wanted men, the Palestinian militant Mohammed Deif, has resurfaced in an Internet video released in which he warns that the radical group Hamas will never surrender its weapons.

A man claiming to be Deif, a chief of Hamas” armed wing the Ezzedine al-Qassam brigades, credits the Islamist faction for the &#34liberation&#34 of Israel”s pullout from the Gaza Strip and vows it will never disarm.

&#34To the brothers of the Palestinian Authority, the liberation of Gaza has been realised thanks to the sincere actions of the Muhajedeen, and as a consequence our weapons will stay in our hands,&#34 he said in the video.

&#34We warn all those who try to touch the weapons of those who liberated Gaza. These arms must be used to free our occupied motherland,&#34 Deif added.

The shadowy Deif is accused of having masterminded several anti-Israeli suicide blasts that left dozens of people dead. He has escaped several assassination attempts by the army
