The Hamas Movement has expressed its heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and admirers of British lawmaker Joe Cox, who was assassinated a few days ago in her district in northern England.

In a brief press release on Saturday, Hamas said that “the Palestinian people lost a friend and a defender of their rights.” Cox was gunned down outside a library in northern England as she was wrapping up a meeting with constituents on Thursday afternoon.

She was considered a prominent figure in the opposition Labour Party and a passionate advocate for the Palestinian cause and victims of the Syrian civil war.
