The Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, issued a message to its website, www.palestine- info.com, on Monday, June 5, 2006, announcing that its brigades will seek revenge and pursue the criminals who shot dead a mujahid, his wife, his sister-in-law, and seriously wounded another mujahid in an attack in Quizan al-Najar the previous night. According to the group, armed men executing their masters, ?the occupiers,? plans fired repeatedly upon the mujahid?s car and members of the police forces who came to help the injured. As a result, Hamas listed a series of three points they ?assure?: killing the criminals regardless of borders, that this was part of a ?conspiracy to turn the Palestinians? and into a pool of blood,? purportedly executed by a group paid by the ?Zionists? to bring down the Hamas government.
Hamas also states: ?We do care about the sacred Palestinian blood. We have never and will never spill any of this sacred blood. We will not remain with our hands tied up in front of these killers of women, unborn babies, and the mujahideen.?
