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 âFiled Observation Unit,â 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 âthe cold-blooded crime, and foolish Israeli act that has serious consequences.â
âIsrael will pay dearly for this crime,â Al-Qassam said in its statement, âOur exacted revenge will fit the crime.”
It is worth mentioning that Abdul-Karimâs brother, Ahmad Radwan, was killed by Israeli soldiers during a military offensive and invasion into Rafah, in 2002.
