Israeli occupation assassinate Qassam Commander Mazen Fuqaha

Full of pride, Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades mourns the death of one of its prominent leaders, the Qassam Commander :

Mazen Mohammed Fuqaha (38 years)

 From Tubas city, released to Gaza in a swap deal in 2011

Who was assassinated in a coward operation on Friday, March 24th, 2017 in Gaza city.

The martyr Mazen passed away after a long path of sacrifice and imprisonment as he had a great role in planning and supervising a number of heroic anti-occupation operations, the most important of which was the response to the massacre of Al-Tuffah neighborhood (the assassination of the General Commander Salah Shehadeh).

As we mourn the leader, Mazen Fuqaha, Al Qassam Brigades say clearly that the Israeli occupation is fully responsible for this crime and bears its consequences.

In short, the equation that the enemy wants to impose (the quiet assassination) will be broken and the enemy will regret this.

The occupation will pay a heavy price for this crime.

 "To God, we belong and to Him, we shall return."
