BREAKING: Hamas declares that it will kill one hostage for every airstrike on Gaza

Hamas has declared that it will kill one person who was captured in Israel for every airstrike sent into Gaza.

According to the Associated Press, Qassam Brigades spokesman Abu Obeida said in an audio clip, "We have decided to put an end to this and as of now and we declare that any targeting of our people in their homes without prior warning will be regrettably faced with the execution of one the hostages of civilians we are holding."

Around 700 people, including 73 soldiers, have been killed in Israel since the attack was launched on Saturday morning, and 493 people have been killed in Gaza.

Hamas has said that they are holding more than 130 people, both soldiers and civilians, hostage that were taken from Israel.

On Monday evening, Israeli planes carried out a bombardment of Rimal, a district of Gaza City. Before carrying out the bombardment, Israel issued warnings for residents top evacuate the area.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
