Commenting on killing a Palestinian civilian and injuring others by the Israeli occupation forces, Hamas states the following:
Hamas mourns the death of Ahmad Manasra, 26, whom the Israeli occupation killed while he was driving a vehicle in the West Bank city of Bethlehem. The Israeli occupation intensifies its aggression against the Palestinian people in a series of consecutive crimes against civilians.
Perpetrating more atrocities against the Palestinian civilians, the Israeli occupation mistakenly thinks that the Palestinian blood will be shed in vain and that the Palestinians will renounce their right to resist the occupation.
The Palestinian people would neither forget the victims killed at the hands of the Israeli occupation nor abandon resistance. They will continue resisting the occupation until restoring their freedom, dignity, and independence.
