Thousands of Palestinians took to the streets of Rafah to mourn the loss of three senior Hamas commanders following an Israeli airstrike in the city on August 21. The Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military wing, named the three commanders as Mohamed Abo Shamaleh, Raed al-Attar and Mohamed Barhoum. The mourners marched through Rafah waving Hamas flags, firing guns and chanting religious slogans.
A Hamas spokesperson said that Israel will “pay a heavy price” for the killings. Credit: YouTube/Watania News Agency
