Hamas Islamic Resistance

Press release by Joint Operation Room of Palestinian Resistance Factions

23 December, 18

The Israeli occupation perpetrated an atrocious crime added to its criminal record against the Palestinian people when  the Israeli snipers targeted peaceful protesters at the Great Return March last Friday on December 12, 2018.

The Israeli deliberate shooting on civilians resulted in killing four civilian Palestinians and injuring dozens of Palestinian protesters.

After thorough investigations, the Palestinian resistance has found out that the Palestinian victims were targeted 300-600 meters away from the separation fence, proving the Israeli snipers’ predetermination to murder the Palestinian, without posing any threat to the Israeli forces deploy along the fence.

In fact, what happened last Friday is an atrocious act reflecting the occupation’s criminal mentality as they deliberately kill the peaceful protesters in cold blood.

In light of this crime, Joint Operation Room of Palestinian Resistance Factions states the following:

FIRST: The criminal acts of the Israeli occupation against the Palestinian people have crossed all the red lines. Hence, the Palestinian resistance would never stand still before the Israeli atrocities.

SECOND: When it comes to the blood, pains, and dignity, no humanitarian assistance would dissuade the Palestinian resistance from fulfilling their national duty. The resistance will defend the Palestinian people against any Israeli aggression.

THIRD: We declare that next Friday will be a real test for the occupation and its bad intentions. If the occupation continues using excessive and disproportionate violence against the protesters, the Palestinian resistance will respond to the Israeli atrocious acts.
