GAZA, (PIC)– A commander from al-Quds Brigades, the Islamic Jihad’s armed wing, was killed and two others have been injured in an Israeli air strike in southern Gaza Strip Wednesday morning.

The hit was in clear violation of a truce recently reached by Palestinian factions in Gaza and Israel.

The casualties, among them al-Quds Brigades commander Ismail al-Asmar, 34, were targeted by drones while in a car in Tel Sultan west of Rafah, medics told the PIC.

The Islamic Jihad has vowed to respond to the hit as well as to other Israeli crimes.

“We will deal with the enemy in a language it understands well, the language of blood. We will not be silent over its crimes constantly committed against our people,” said islamic Jihad leader Ahmed al-Mudallil in statement aired by Al-Aqsa radio station on Wednesday.

Later on, al-Quds Brigades declared that it bombed three Israeli military sites with six mortar shells after the hit.

It also announced that one of its cells survived an Israeli air strike in Deir al-Balah in central Gaza Strip.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all?
