Who Blew Up Six Hamas Terrorists? Israel Says It Has NO IDEA

Six gunmen for the terrorist group Hamas died Saturday in an explosion in Gaza, near the Israeli border. Hamas knows just who to blame.

Hamas, the armed group fighting on behalf of the Palestinians, has been responsible for most of the violence in Gaza, where protests between Palestinians and Israel have once again turned violent. The United States, Israel, and most western nations have designated Hamas a terror group.

The terror group is blaming Israel for an explosion that killed six of their armed members, while refusing to say what those men were doing at the time. Israel claims it had nothing to do with the explosion, although it has conducted operations against armed Hamas terrorists in recent weeks.

Reuters reports.

A statement from the Palestinian Islamist group’s armed wing called the incident a “deplorable Zionist crime” perpetrated against its fighters.

“During a complicated security and intelligence operation conducted by Qassam Brigades to investigate a serious and a grave security incident conducted by the Zionist enemy against Palestinian resistance, a deplorable crime took place against our Mujahideen in the area of Zawayda in central Gaza Strip,” it said.

It is not unusual for Israel to carry out strikes, focused bombings, and other military operations against individual Hamas members and leaders they have identified as inciting violence in their country.

Reuters television captured a pillar of smoke rising above the village of Zawayda near the coast of Gaza, far from the border with Israel where tensions have escalated in recent weeks.

The exact circumstances of the blast were unclear and Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, provided no further details.

An Israeli military spokesman declined to comment on the incident, although a more junior official had earlier denied the army was involved.

Israel and the West designate Hamas as a terrorist organization.
