Al Qassam Brigades Information Office: "Rules of the game in Gaza have changed"

This is probably half-bluster and half-justified. Israel should do something about the justified part:
Ezzedeen Al Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic resistance movement Hamas, warned the Zionist occupation forces that "rules of the game" in Gaza Strip have changed, and that any OF invasion of the Strip won't be a "picnic".

Ezzedeen Al Qassam Brigades warning came after OF officer of the elite forces was killed and two other soldiers were wounded during OF incursion into Khanyounis city, southeast of the Strip. One QB fighter was martyred in the armed clashes.

According to local sources, earlier OF attempt to advance into Jabalia city, north of Gaza city, was botched by Ezzedeen Al Qassam Brigades fighters who also forced the invading troops to retreat.

"The killing of the OF officer was a clear message to the occupation that any OF incursion into the Strip will cost it a high price as rules of the game have changed in Gaza Strip", asserted Abu Obaida, the spokesman of the Brigades.

"If the [Zionist] occupation wished to try invading the Gaza Strip once again, then they will lose a lot as they have seen what had happened to them in a limited incursion; yet, if the OF troops opted to continue their intrusions into the tiny Strip, then their losses will be more as the invasion of Gaza won't be a picnic for the Zionist occupation soldiers", the Brigades spokesman furthermore underlined.

Moreover, Abu Obadia disclosed that the Palestinian resistance capabilities were in continuous development, and Ezzedeen Al Qassam Brigades fighters along with other Palestinian fighters became also more organized and prepared.
That's true, no doubt.
