Jihad claims Israeli assassination of one of its leaders
Al-Quds Brigade of the Islamic Jihad in Palestine accused Israeli forces Wednesday of executing one of its leaders in Gaza Strip during incursions last night.
The brigade said in a statement that Yousif Sulaiman Al-Sumairi, 47, one of its top leaders in Gaza Strip, was killed after Special Israeli Forces surrounded his home last night.
"Al-Sumairi clashed with Israeli forces who arrested him later on and executed him in cold blood, in addition to his son and several others," the statement said.
The brigade promised to resist and revenge the blood of those killed in Jihad.
Meanwhile, Israeli fighter planes launched air raids earlier this morning, targeting several areas of northern Gaza Strip.
Palestinian security sources said, "There were three Israeli raids which included targeting empty areas with missiles in Bait Lahai and Bait Hanoun, but they caused no casualties." On the other hand, the Israeli Army said that its helicopters launched three raids earlier today on northern Gaza Strip areas.
