Hamas calls for retaliating to Israel’s killing of three Palestinians
The Hamas Movement has strongly condemned the extrajudicial killing of three Palestinian citizens in Jerusalem and the West Bank on Friday at the hands of Israeli soldiers, stressing that such crimes make the resistance more determined to retaliate. “Such crimes will not succeed in breaking the will of our people, and all this pure blood will be a disaster for the occupation and a blessed fuel for al-Quds intifada (uprising),” Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said.
Abu Zuhri called on the Palestinian people to continue their resistance activities against the occupation in revenge for the blood of their martyrs. For his part, Husam Badran, another spokesman for Hamas, stated that Israel’s persistence in committing crimes against the Palestinian people would increase the resistance’ determination to respond strongly. He also urged all Palestinian resistance factions to join forces to avenge the Palestinian blood.
