GAZA, (PIC)– Israeli aircraft on Friday evening assassinated Zuhair al-Qaisi, secretary general of the Popular Resistance Committees and one of its field leaders, Mahmoud Hananni, who is a liberated captive from Nablus.

PIC correspondent said that Israeli occupation aircraft fired a rocket at a car travelling in Tal-al-Islam in the city of Gaza resulting in the death of the two leaders and critically wounding a third person.

Spokesman for the emergency services in the Gaza Strip said that two Palestinians were killed and a third was wounded in an Israeli occupation airstrike targeting a car in Tel-al-Islam in Gaza City.

The Gaza government for its part held the Israeli occupation fully responsible for the repercussions of its crime.

Spokesman for the government Taher al-Nunu, said in a statement to PIC: “This is a serious crime. The Palestinian government strongly condemns it and holds the Zionist occupation fully responsible for the repercussions of this heinous crime.”

He stressed that the assassination of the secretary general of the PRC at this time when Gaza is witnessing a period of calm is an attempt by the occupation to stir things up to cause instability.

He also said that the assassination of a liberated captive who has been deported to the Gaza Strip shows the immorality of the occupation which, in the West Bank, also started re-arresting liberated captives who were freed in the Shalit exchange deal.

The Israeli occupation admitted committing the crime, the Hebrew radio quoted military sources as saying that the assassination of Qaisi and Hananni was to prevent a serious attack the two were planning at the Egyptian borders with the 1948 occupied Palestine.
