Hero of Ofra Op Martyred, “Israel” Says
In the wake of the latest heroic Ofra operation against Zionist settlers, the “Israeli” occupation army stormed the house of Martyr Salih al-Barghouthi, north of Ramallah.
The “Israeli” occupation army claimed that al-Barghouthi [29 years] was martyred after attempting to escape the shooting and a clash with the Zionist soldiers, however witnesses confirmed that the hero was detained after opening fire on his car, and that he was seen stepping out of the car where no blood stains were detected.
According to the “Israeli” army statement, al-Barghouthi “is a member of the cell that carried out the Ofra operation,” adding that they detained other members.
The man was announced by Hamas resistance movement as the one who carried out the operation outside the illegal Ofra settlement earlier this week.
“Hamas announces with great pride the death of its martyr Salih Omar Barghouthi, the perpetrator of the heroic Ofra operation,” Hamas wrote on its official Twitter account early Thursday morning.
Barghouthi is a resident of Kobar, a village near Ramallah.
For the past three days, soldiers have been carrying out intensive searches for suspects involved in the operation.
Late Wednesday, Zionist troops raided a home in Kobar belonging to Barghouthi’s family and surrounded a building in Ramallah.
