Lebanon's Hezbollah resistance movement has condemned the latest Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip, pledging its full support for all measures that the Palestinian resistance groups will take to deter the occupying regime from continuing its acts of aggression.

Hezbollah made the remarks in a statement on Tuesday, after three high-profile commanders of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance movement were killed in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza earlier in the day.

“We express our solidarity with the Islamic Jihad resistance movement and reiterate our support for all the choices of the Palestinian resistance groups aimed at deterring the Israeli enemy and protecting the Palestinian people as well as their sanctities,” the statement said.

Hezbollah further noted that the assassination of the resistance commanders will reinforce the Arab and Muslim Ummah’s awareness and unity and make it more determined to proceed with the choice of resistance until achieving full victory.

The Lebanese resistance movement further denounced as “a crime against humanity” the brutal attacks on the Gaza Strip that targeted women and children, urging human rights organizations to take appropriate steps to stop the ongoing Israeli crimes.

Early on Tuesday, Israeli military aircraft launched a series of targeted strikes on the Gaza Strip, killing at least 13 people, including women and children. Three senior commanders of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance movement were also among those martyred.

At least 20 others were also wounded, according to Palestinian reports, with a number of sites in Gaza City, Rafah and Khan Yunis targeted, among other locations.

Later on Tuesday, two more Palestinians were also killed in a fresh Israeli airstrike on the southern Gaza Strip.

The Gaza health ministry said the two men were killed by an airstrike on a vehicle in Khan Yunis.

The attacks drew widespread international condemnation, with the Palestinian resistance movements of Hamas and Islamic Jihad vowing to take revenge for the blood of those martyred in Gaza.
