Hamas official: 50 of the 62 Gazans killed in border violence were our members
The Times of Israel ^ | 05/16/18 | Judah Ari Gross

A Hamas official on Wednesday acknowledged that 50 of the 62 Palestinians reported killed during Gaza border riots on Monday and Tuesday were members of the Islamist terrorist group, bringing the total number of known members of terror groups among the fatalities up to 53.

“In the last rounds of confrontations, if 62 people were martyred, 50 of them were Hamas,” said Hamas official Salah Bardawil in a television interview.

The Iran-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad had said on Tuesday that three members of its Saraya al-Quds military wing were killed by Israeli forces in Khan Younis.

The Israeli military shared a portion of Bardawil’s interview with an Arabic news outlet, accompanied by English captions.

“This proves what so many have tried to ignore: Hamas is behind these riots, and the branding of the riots as ‘peaceful protests’ could not be further from the truth,” said IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.

According to the Hamas-run Gaza health ministry, 62 people in total were killed during border clashes on Monday and Tuesday.

Israel has not put out its own official death toll, but officials have questioned the accuracy of the Hamas-provided figure. In one case, a Gazan doctor told the Associated Press that an 8-month-old baby, who the Gaza ministry said died after inhaling Israeli tear gas on Monday, had a preexisting medical condition and that he did not believe her death was caused by tear gas.

The Israel Defense Forces on Tuesday had said that at least 24 members of Hamas and Islamic Jihad were killed in day-long clashes Monday. At that stage, Hamas acknowledged 10 of the dead were its members.

And that’s a bad thing?

What happens to their $100-a-day Soros money, since they were killed? Does Hamas collect their wages?

That demonstrates great IDF restraint, and good marksmanship.

I’ll bet the other 12 were candidates...

“How many left?”

Probably too many to loose too many more! Besides, I hear they're running out of virgins in Hell! Wouldn't be fair to off yourself only to find out that your “virgin allotment” has been cut in half!

I read where anyone killed would be reimbursed $4000 by Hamas. So you tell me, it there wasn’t some staged deaths by these people.
