The armed wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine said one of the group's fighters was killed Thursday morning, when an explosive device detonated while the young man was on a "jihad mission," a statement said.Palestine Times had reported that Elbeh mishandled a hand grenade and it exploded. But unless there is a public announcement that he was on a "jihad mission," he might miss out on his 70 virgins.
It is the second accidental death of a Gaza resistance fighter reported in as many days, following the death of an Al-Qassam brigadesman in Khan Younis on Wednesday.
A DFLP statement said National Resistance Brigades fighter Khader Abu Elbeh, 22, was seriously wounded during an operation west of the Jabaliya area in the northern Gaza Strip and later died of his injuries.
The dead Al Qassam member, on the other hand, had the misfortune to die in a traffic accident.
In other good news, one of the Hamas terrorists injured by an Israeli airstrike last week in Rafah has joined the virgins as well. PalTimes says that he was among a group of fighters.
But PCHR claimed that every air strike in Rafah last week was against "civilians."
