Gaza in mourning

THE LEVANT –  Several thousand mourners on Wednesday joined the funeral procession for the wife and baby son of Hamas’s military commander Mohammed Deif, angrily demanding revenge against Israel.

Firing Kalashnikovs into the air, they carried the bodies of 27-year-old Widad and her seven-month-old son Ali, who were among at least four people killed in a deadly air strike on Gaza City late on Tuesday.

The two bodies were wrapped in green Hamas flags as they were carried from the mosque to the cemetery in Jabaliya refugee camp. Mourners also carried the flag-wrapped bodies of two men killed in an air strike Wednesday on a motorcycle, both presumed Hamas militants.

“Revenge, revenge, revenge,” shouted the crowd as they walked towards the cemetery waving Hamas flags and denouncing the killing of the second wife and infant son of Mr Deif, head of the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.
