The Deputy Chief of the Political Bureau of the Hamas movement, Saleh al-Arouri, was martyred on Tuesday evening, as a result of an attack that targeted the Southern Suburb of Beirut.
Lebanon’s National News Agency reported that “an Israeli drone targeted an office of the Hamas movement in Msharafieh” while “ambulances reached the area to transport casualties.”
Our correspondent reported that an Israeli drone targeted the building with three missiles, resulting in the martyrdom of six individuals.
The late martyr and leader had previously discussed in an interview for Al Mayadeen increasing Israeli death threats against him. When asked about the issue, martyr al-Arouri said, “The Israeli threat against me will not change my convictions, and it will not have an impact on the path [that I have chosen].”
The Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, mourned the “great national leader,” Saleh al-Arouri, who commanded the Resistance in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and was the architect of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.
“We hope that our lives will end with martyrdom, which we cherish.”
