Occupied Palestine (QNN)- The Islamic resistance movement of Hamas has condemned Israeli forces killing of four Palestinian freedom fighters earlier on Sunday during raids in the occupied West Bank.
“We mourn the martyrs who were killed during clashes with the occupation forces in Jenin and Jerusalem, and we stress that the blood of all the martyrs will not be spilled in vain,” Hamas spokesman Abdel Latif al-Qanou said, shortly after the killing, while calling to escalate the resistance against the occupation.
Al-Qanou added that the “blood of the martyrs today will continue to fuel the continuation of our people’s revolution against the occupation and a renewed determination to uproot and sweep it from our land.”
“The death of the martyrs is a product of the ongoing security coordination with the Zionist occupation and the price of normalization meetings held by PA leaders with Zionist Israeli officials in Ramallah in recent days, which encouraged the occupation to again hunt and kill the young revolutionaries,” Al-Qanou stated.
Israeli occupation forces shot dead four Palestinian freedom fighters during raids in the occupied West Bank in the predawn hours of Sunday morning.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad said that at least one of the dead was a member of the group while the other three were said to be members of Hamas.
The IOF and Prime Minister Naftali Bennett claimed that a Hamas cell was planning to carry out attacks imminently.
IOF Spokesperson Ran Kochav said the military believed Hamas may retaliate to the deaths and arrests of its members with rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.
