A Palestinian resistance fighter of the Al-Qassam brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas movement, died early on Sunday morning of wounds he sustained earlier yesterday.

Mohammad Yousef Hammouda, 25, was pronounced dead after having been hit, along with three other resistance fighters, with an Israeli warplane’s missile in northern Gaza.

Yesterday, an Israeli warplane killed Basel Shabet, Mohammad aLSha’er and Hassan Shaqoura, of the media branch of the Saraya aL-Quds brigade, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad.

From its part, the Sarray aL-Quds Brigades vowed in a statement, faxed to press, to retaliate to the killing of its members, warning of more resistance attacks against the Israeli occupation.

Medical sources confirmed that five people, including two women, were yesterday transferred to aLShifa hospital in Gaza city, after an Israeli drone fired a missile towards the vicinity of aL-Shayma’ local school in northern Beit Lahiya town.

The Israeli attack yesterday brought a two-week lull in violence to an end, thus more tension is likely in the upcoming period, as Israel has so far shunned any ceaseire offer by Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza including that of the ruling Hamas.
