Less than two months after the elimination of a senior-level Hamas member Mazen Faqha, the terrorist organization announced today (Thursday) that the man responsible for the act has been arrested. “The murderer has given a detailed statement to the Palestinian security forces,” stated Hamas political bureau head Ismail Haniyeh.

“The assassination of Faqha by the Zionist enemy was a serious and painful blow in terms of defense and strategy,” Haniyeh said during a press conference. “From the first moment, the Hamas forces worked around the clock in every field- on the ground and in the water- in order to complete the investigation. In order to hit the Israeli security forces with an even stronger blow, I’m announcing that the man who committed the murder has been arrested.”

According to Haniyeh, the man who was arrested gave a detailed statement to the Palestinian security forces. “This is a strategic achievement,” said Haniyeh. “We used all resources in order to make sure that the man who committed the murder is the one who’s in our hands.”

In March, Faqha was eliminated outside of his home in Gaza. The official Hamas announcement about his death did not include details about the circumstances of the incident but Hamas members quickly began blaming Israel.
