Hamas's leader in Gaza said Friday his Islamist movement did not seek war with Israel but would resist incursions into the Palestinian enclave, following the worst cross-border violence since 2014 .Since Wednesday, Hamas and other militant groups have fired at least 12 mortar rounds across the frontier, and Israeli tanks have fired repeatedly at what the army said were Hamas targets.The Palestinian fire targeted Israeli forces searching along the border, and short distances inside Gaza, for infiltration tunnels leading into southern Israel – among the most feared weapons of Hamas fighters during the 2014 summer war.The Israeli army admits it has operated inside Palestinian territory but said it was within 100 meters of the border, where it says it has operated since the 2014 war.
