“We are loyal to those who stood with the resistance and with Palestine and we hold the US administration and the Zionist occupation fully responsible for the consequences of this deplorable crime,” said Hamas official Ismail Radwan.

The leaders of the terrorist groups Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which are both supported by Iran, took part in the mourning tent set up in the center of Gaza City.

Flags of Israel and the United States were stomped on and later burned at the event, the report noted.
