Palestine PM: Killing Crazy Dangerous Cowardly Act

Palestine PM: Killing a “crazy, dangerous and cowardly act.”

Spiritual leader of Hamas Sheikh Ahmad Yasin, assassinated by Israel.

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) extra-judicially assassinated the spiritual leader of Hamas Sheikh Ahmad Yasin while leaving a mosque after he performed his predawn prayers in Gaza early Monday. The martyr founded the Islamic Resistance Movement under the 37-year-old Israeli occupation.

Palestinian PM Ahmad Qurei described the assassination of Yasin as a “crazy, dangerous and cowardly act.” IOF sealed off the Palestinian Territory indefinitely. The West Bank and Gaza Strip went on general strike in public mourning.
