Hamas on Tuesday said that the IDF's killing of those responsible for the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens in June would not harm the organization.

"Hamas praises the role martyrs Abu Aysha and Kawasme played in chasing down Israeli settlers and we stress that their assassination will not weaken the resistance," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said in Gaza.

The governor of Hebron, Kamel Hmeid, confirmed on Palestinian radio that the two were dead.

"It's clear now the two martyrs, al-Kawasme and Abu Aysha, were assassinated this morning during a military operation in the Hebron University area. We condemn this crime, this assassination, as deliberate and premeditated murder," he said.
