Thousands of mourners attend Hamas commander's funeral

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Thousands of mourners attended the funeral of Hamas military commander Ahmad al-Jaabari in Gaza City on Thursday.

Israel assassinated al-Jaabari, the leader of the al-Qassam brigades, in a missile strike on his car Wednesday.

Hamas officials and al-Qassam Brigades leaders did not attend the funeral, where mourners fired guns in the air celebrating news of the Israeli deaths, to chants for al-Jaabari of "You have won."

At least 10 other Palestinians have been killed in 12 hours of heavy air strikes, tank and naval shelling, including a pregnant woman, a 7-year-old boy and an 11-month old baby.
