The Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas movement, issued a statement, Thursday, vowing retaliation for the death of one of its members, east of Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
Al-Qassam issued a statement saying that the Israeli missiles were fired at an observation post, east of Rafah, killing Abdul-Karim Ismael Radwan, 22, and wounding three others.
He was a member of the â€śFiled Observation Unit,â€ť in the Gaza Strip, tasked with monitoring the border fence, and the Israeli invasions into the coastal region.
It denounced the assassination, and held Israel fully accountable for what it called â€śthe cold-blooded crime, and foolish Israeli act that has serious consequences.â€ť
â€śIsrael will pay dearly for this crime,â€ť Al-Qassam said in its statement, â€śOur exacted revenge will fit the crime.”
It is worth mentioning that Abdul-Karimâ€™s brother, Ahmad Radwan, was killed by Israeli soldiers during a military offensive and invasion into Rafah, in 2002.
