GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Crowds in Gaza City joined the funeral processions of seven Islamic Jihad fighters who were killed by Israeli forces Friday and Saturday morning.

Funeral of Muatasim Hajjaj, Ahmad Hajjaj, Fayiq Saad, Shadi Sayqali, Hazim Qureiqi, Ubeid Gharably and Muhammad Hararah set out from Shifa hospital in Gaza City, then to Al-Umari Mosque.

After prayers, the bodies were carried to their families for a final farewell. However, families will have to look at covered bodies because most victims were torn to pieces.

Mourners chanted slogans calling on resistance fighters to retaliate, while gunshots were fired into the air.

The Popular Resistance Committees announced that the funeral of the group’s secretary-general sheikh Zuheir Qaisi would set out from Al-Awda Mosque in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile Mahmoud Hanani, originally from Nablus, will be buried after midday prayer. The funeral will set out from the Shura Mosque in Tal al-Zaatar neighborhood in the northern Gaza Strip.

Funerals for Mahmoud Najim and Muhammad Al-Maghari will be held in Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip. Muhammad Al-Ghamry will be buried in Deir Al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.
