Thousands march in funeral of 3 Hamas commanders


Thousands of Palestinians marched in the funerals of three Hamas leaders and seven members of the Kallab and Younis families in Rafah on Thursday, as Israel continued to pound Gaza throughout the day.

Representatives and members of a wide variety of Palestinian political factions marched in the funerals, which set off from al-Awdah Mosque in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

In addition to the three Hamas commanders Muhammad Abu Shammala, Raed al-Attar and Muhammad Barhoum that were killed in Israeli airstrikes, Hasan Hussein Younis, 75, his wife Amal Ibrahim Younis, Ahmad Nasser Kallab, 17, Nathira Kallab, Aisha Attiya, and children Abdullah Kallab and Youssef Kallab were also mourned in the funeral march.

A Hamas spokesman said earlier that the killing of Hamas commanders would not break the will of Palestinians nor of the Palestinian resistance, adding that Israel will pay for their deaths. more
