At least three Zionists killed in Palestinian resistance operation

Unknown assailants have killed at least three Zionist settlers and wounded five others on the anniversary of the Nakba, which marks the Israeli regime’s declaration of existence in 1948 and the subsequent ethnic cleaning of the Palestinian population.

The operation, for which no person or group has claimed responsibility so far, took place in the city of Elad in the central part of the occupied territories on

Among the wounded, three are in “a serious condition,” while the remaining two have received moderate or light injuries, the occupying regime’s Magen David Adom (MDA) emergency response service was cited by AFP as reporting.

An MDA staff member described the situation, which was encountered by the service, as a “complex scene.”

The staffer said all of the dead were men in their early 40s, and described those wounded seriously as men aged between 35 and 60.

Zionist police have initiated a manhunt, scrambling helicopters and setting up roadblocks throughout the occupied territories.

15 May 1948 marks the day when the Israeli regime proclaimed its existence, after a heavily Western-backed war that expelled more than 700,000 people from their homes in the Palestinian territories.

The Thursday incident came only several days after Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

The fasting month saw the Zionist regime scaling up its attacks on Palestinians at the Al-Aqsa Compound in the holy city of Al-Quds, also known as Jerusalem.

Outraged by the barbarity of these attacks, Palestinians intensified their attacks on Israelis throughout the Palestinian territories. Resistance groups in the nearby Palestinian territory of the Gaza Strip have described Thursday’s operation as “a token of Palestinians’ outrage at the occupying regime’s escalation targeting the compound of the mosque, which is Islam’s third-holiest site.”

Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, the Gaza Strip’s leading political party, has called the attack “a heroic operation.” It noted how it had warned that the mosque was “a red line,” saying the operation was the “practical implementation” of that warning.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement has called the operation “a victory for Al-Aqsa.”

The group described the violation of the mosque’s compound by the Israeli regime and illegal settlers as “a declaration of war against the Palestinian people,” vowing that “our people will continue to confront the occupation and its aggression.”
