Top Hamas leader attends funeral of Palestinians killed in covert Israeli raid


The head of Hamas Political Bureau participated in the funeral of seven Palestinians killed late Sunday during an Israeli incursion into the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis.

Hanyia extended his condolences to the families and relatives of the seven Palestinians killed during the undercover Israeli raid on Khan Younis.   

Thousands of Palestinians mourned the death of seven Palestinians by the Israeli occupation forces in a clandestine raid on Gaza.

A squad of the Israeli Special Forces infiltrated into Gaza late Sunday in a civilian car and engaged into an exchange of fire with the Palestinian resistance who tried to thwart the attack.

During the fire exchange, Israeli aircraft fired more than 40 missiles onto the area where the incident took place, killing at least another four persons, witnesses said.
