According to TheBlaze, during his speech inaugurating the tank, Hamas’ Izzedin Al-Qassam Brigades spokesman Abu Obeida warned that the Islamic movement was “preparing ourselves for the day that we shall meet those [Israeli] tanks.” He went on to say:

“Let us point our index finger toward heaven and renew our pledge of allegiance to Allah and to the commanders of the Izzedin Al-Qassam Brigades and vow to continue on the path of jihad and resistance,” he said at the ceremony.
