Gaza -Fifty members of the Hamas terror organization were among those killed in the protests along the Gaza border on Monday, according to a Hamas spokesperson.

“In the last rounds of confrontations, if 62 people were martyred, 50 of them were Hamas,” said Hamas official Salah Bardawil in a television interview.

The Israeli military shared a portion of Bardawil’s interview with an Arabic news outlet, accompanied by English captions.

Nearly 60 people were killed and hundreds wounded by Israeli fire Monday in the deadliest day of cross-border violence since a 2014 war. Israel has accused Hamas of encouraging protesters to storm the border fence, and using the demonstrations as cover to carry out attacks.

The Hamas-led organizers of the Palestinian marches along the Gaza border have rejected a shipment of medical aid from Israel — despite widespread shortages of key supplies in the wake of deadly violence this week.

The Supreme Committee of the Great Return March said Wednesday the Palestinians would not accept medicine “from the murderers of our people.” It accused Israel of “trying to improve its black image.”

The committee says protests will resume on Friday.

Doesn't that make you feel uneasy when the Hamas confirmed how many were died or injured??? You think maybe they would exaggerate it a little so people would get angry at Israel?

These animals do not even value their own lives. Who would reject donations of medical supplies when they are badly needed. Answer - their own lives do not matter to them. All that does is the obsession of hate and their dedication to a lifestyle of murder and thirst for blood. These are truly undeserving of life, and should be exterminated.

Innocent civilians just being peaceful? Thank you.
These people are animals out to kill and kidnap. you think they were just breaching the border to take a stroll? And they were armed and dangerous.\

There should be no tolerance on this issue esp on a jewish site like vin. This is not debatable like Trump and ruskies. This case is a closed case. These were animals who needed to be shot dead period.

Vin please ban commentors who make jewish lives cheap.

To Paulin in Saudi- You are a provocateur, who lives in a country, which is still technically at war with Israel; in your backyard, the religious police oppress women, and anybody else, who does not live up to their standards. Yet, you have never once criticized them on this site. I wonder why?

I criticize Saudi Arabia a lot. We just don't talk about Saudi Arabia a lot here. I suppose we will more in the future as the alliance solidifies.

That comment is foolish, as you imply that the oppression is due to Israel. That is a filthy lie, and you know it. Hamas oppresses its own population, denying them financial support, restoration of needed infrastructure, while it forces them to starve in poverty, risk their lives to commit acts of terror, and divert money to terror and enriching the politicians among them. So perhaps the civilians in Gaza do not value their life and accept death as a viable option. But implying that Israel perpetrates this is completely untrue, and you know that. Have you observed Gaza gathering near the border with Egypt to protest, throw stones and Molotov cocktails, bombs, etc.? Why not?

#13. Have you explained this to the people in Gaza? You seem to know much more about their situation than they themselves do.
