GAZA, (PIC)-- Hamas declared the martyrdom of Ahmad Jabari, the senior commander of the military wing of Hamas in the Gaza Strip, alongside his bodyguard, Mohammed al-Hams, in an initial Israeli strike on a car in Gaza City.
Ahmad Jabari, the operational commander of Hamas’s armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, was killed on Wednesday alongside his bodyguard, Mohammed al-Hams, in an initial Israeli strike on a car in Gaza City which took place just before 4:00 pm (14:00 GMT), the Islamist movement said in a statement.
The statement said Jabari "was a senior Hamas operative... directly responsible for executing resistance operation against the occupation in the past number of years," adding that he survived several assassination attempts, and he had spent more than 13 years in the Israeli prisons.
The Hamas movement "mourns the martyr leader Ahmed al-Jabari, and his bodyguard the martyr Mohammed al-Hams, and holds the Israeli occupation fully responsible for this heinous crime, and stresses that it will pay a heavy price by targeting resistance leaders and symbols of our people" the statement added, warning the occupation of the serious repercussions for this cowardly assassination.
The movement also confirmed that "the Palestinian people and the resistance factions will not stand idly before these Israeli crimes," calling for revenge vowing retaliation.
It stated that the movement and its military wing will continue to defend its people against this aggression and Israeli terrorism.
"We promise the blood of the martyr Ahmed al-Jabari and the blood of all our martyrs that we will always defend our people and our land and our holy places .. and we will continue Jihad and resistance until victory and liberation," the statement stresses.
