The Palestinian Islamist group Hamas vowed on Friday that Israel’s killing of gunman Nashat Milhem in a raid in Wadi Ara “was not the end of the story, and the coming period will prove this.”

It is believed that Milhem was not operating on behalf of Hamas, and the Islamist organization never accepted responsibility for the New Year’s Day attack.

Nonetheless, Palestinians in Gaza as well as in the refugee camps of Lebanon celebrated the attack.

Islamic Jihad also reacted to Milhem’s death on Friday, condemning it as a crime.

“The Palestinian people have a right to resist the occupation,” the jihadist organization said.
