GAZA, (PIC)– Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, held the Israeli occupation fully responsible for all consequences of its assassination of three Qassam commanders at dawn Saturday, stressing what what happened was serious escalation.

Spokesman for Al-Qassam Brigades Abu Obeida said in a press release that the assassination of the fighters was orchestrated and the perpetrators would pay dearly for their crime.

Regarding Israeli claims that the fighters were planning to carry out an operation against Israeli targets, the spokesman said the occupation made such claims to justify its crime.

As for Al-Qassam Brigades’ reaction to this Israeli attack, the spokesman said that if Israel decided to play with fire, it would definitely burn itself.

Three commanders of Al-Qassam Brigades were killed at an early hour today following an aerial attack on their car near Salahuddin street in Khan Younis city south of Gaza.

Earlier reports mistakenly claimed that the fighters were affiliated with Islamic Jihad’s armed wing Al-Quds Brigades.

In the same context, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said the assassination of three resistance fighters from Al-Qassam Brigades was a deliberate crime and persistence in shedding the Palestinian blood.

Spokesman Barhoum belied Israeli claims that the fighters were intending to capture Israelis from the Egyptian city of Sinai.

He emphasized that the absence of international justice and the reluctance to prosecute Israeli war criminals means more killing of Palestinians.
