GAZA, (PIC)-- The Salahuddin Brigades, the armed wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, announced a “temporary” halt to firing of locally made rockets at Israeli targets.
Abu Ataya, the armed wing’s spokesman, told a press conference in Gaza on Monday that the decision was based on the higher interests of the Palestinian people.
He said that the decision did not mean a ceasefire with the Israeli occupation, explaining that resistance would continue until liberation of all occupied Palestinian land.
Meanwhile, Adham Salmiya, the spokesman for medical services in Gaza, said that 15 people were killed in the Israeli aggression on Gaza that lasted for three days, adding that three children and a doctor were among the dead.
He added in a statement on Sunday that the bodies of all martyrs were mutilated and burnt, which reflects the type of devastating weapons used by the Israeli occupation forces against the Gaza population.
Salmiya said that 55 citizens were wounded including 15 children, 12 women, and a paramedic.
He urged the world community and the European Union to activate the international law and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that protect civilians at times of military action.
