GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinian crowds took part, on Monday, in the funerals of seven Palestinians who were killed during Israeli airstrikes targeting the Khuzaa town in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, on late Sunday.

Seven members of the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas movement, were killed, including a senior member during a campaign of Israeli airstrikes over Khuzaa.

The funerals set off from the European Hospital in Khan Younis City towards the Hamzeh Mosque in Khuzaa, east of Khan Younis, where the families of the slain al-Qassam fighters said their final goodbyes before burial at the Eastern cemetery of Khan Younis.

Palestinian factions and their military wings attended in the funeral processions.

The bodies of the killed seven were carried on the shoulders by members of the al-Qassam Brigades.

The Hamas movement held Israel responsible for the "crime," saying that "entering Gaza is not a picnic," adding that those who enter are either killed or imprisoned.

The movement said that it hold its right to respond to the crime that left seven of its fighters killed, including one leader.
