A rather interesting conversation between IDF and al-Quassam Brigades:

IDF tweeted: “We recommend that no Hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leaders, show their faces above ground in the days ahead.”

(Read the tweet here.)

Al-Quassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas answered:

“@idfspokesperson Our blessed hands will reach your leaders and soldiers wherever they are (You Opened Hell Gates on Yourselves).”

(Read the tweet here.)

The differences in rhetoric are interesting. The rhetoric of Al-Quassam is fairly biblical, a tad old-fashioned.

IDF is more steeped in the tradition of the western, it's the cowboy movie all over again. It could also be explained as slapstick: we want to play hide-and-seek with you.
