State of Palestine: Hamas member killed in IS-suicide bombing mourned in Gaza

A funeral held for a Hamas member killed in a suicide bombing by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS), attracted thousands of mourners in the Gaza Strip, Thursday. Nidal al-Jaafari's body was carried through crowds as part of a funeral procession, with various Hamas members standing guard. Al-Jaafari, 28, was at the border crossing between southern Gaza and Egypt at... Еще around on Thursday morning when, according to reports, a self-proclaimed IS suicide bomber detonated himself, killing al-Jaafari and injuring several others. Three other IS terrorists were also reportedly arrested at the time. Should the attacker be positively identified as acting on behalf of IS during on-going investigations, it would mark the first time the organisation has targeted Hamas and it would also be confirmed as a rare attack on the group by an Wahhabist organisation.
