Gaza - Ma'an - Palestinians in Rafah, Khan Younis and Gaza City held funeral processions for four Palestinians on Monday who were killed by Israeli attacks earlier in the day.

The funeral of the Hamas fighter Husam Abu Hain was held in Gaza City. The funeral headed from Ash-Shifa hospital to the deceased's family home then to the mosque for prayer before the burial.

Meanwhile, the funeral of Hamas activists Tha'ir Hani Salah and Tha'r Musbih headed from Nasser hospital in Khan Younis to their families' homes before going to mosque, and then to the cemetery.

In Rafah, mourners took part in the funeral of 21-year-old Midhat Awwad, an activist with the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, the An-Nasser Salah Addin Brigades.

The mourners in all funeral processions condemned the Israeli criminal acts against the Palestinian people, demanding that Palestinian military groups take revenge.

Deadly strikes

Four Palestinians were killed after the Israeli warplanes launched two attacks at groups of fighters in the Ash-Shuja'yya neighborhood in Gaza City and the village of Khuzza'a, east of Khan Younis.

Al-Qassam Brigades also announced that two other activists have been injured in Khuzza'a. They named them as Hani Abu Salah and Tha'ir Musbih.

Eyewitnesses told our reporter that Israeli warplanes fired three missiles at a group of activists in Khuzza'ah killing two and injuring two others.

In the Ash-Shuja'iyya neighborhood, an Israeli helicopter fired at least one missile at a group of Palestinian fighters, killing Husam Abu Hein and injuring another seriously.

Later on Monday, medical sources at Abu Yousif An-Najjar hospital announced that corpse of Midhat Awwad, was found.

Sources told Ma'an that medics found the corpse lying on the ground after the Israeli forces which invaded Rafah this morning withdrew. He seemed to have been wounded and left bleeding until he died.
