The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas on Friday mourned Tayseer Al-Jaabari, the senior military commander of the Islamic Jihad's military wing, Al-Quds Brigades.

The Israeli occupation army carried out several air strikes in the besieged Gaza Strip, killing ten people, including Al-Jaabari and a five-year-old girl, and wounding 55 others, the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza disclosed.

Hamas announced in a statement: "Martyr Al-Jaabari was targeted by the treacherous Zionist hands after a journey of sacrifices, jihad and support for his country, people and the whole ummah."

Hamas added: "As our people bid farewell to a Palestinian leader, the Israeli occupation bears the responsibility for the consequences of this oppressive aggression."

The Islamic resistance movement reiterated: "The Israeli crimes and targeting the Palestinian heroes will definitely push our resistance to reinforce their fight for the defence of our people and the return of our rights and holy sites."
