A spokesman for Hamas condemned the IAF airstrikes in the Gaza Strip Tuesday that resulted in the death of a Palestinian toddler, calling it a "cowardly crime," Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

The IAF strikes were in retaliation for the killing for a Defense Ministry contractor by Palestinian sniper fire on the Israeli-Gaza border earlier in the day.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri accused Israel of targeting Palestinian families, and added Israeli threats and raids will not deter Palestinian fighters.
