Suspected Killer of Hamas Commander Arrested Suspected Killer of Hamas Commander Arrested

Hamas has arrested the suspected murderer of one of its key commanders in Gaza, the Palestinian movement’s leader said on Thursday, while maintaining Israel was behind the March assassination. “We announce that the killer and criminal that carried out the orders of the officers of the Zionist security services is in the hands of the (Hamas) security services,” Ismail Haniyeh told journalists in the Gaza Strip, i24 News reported. “He has confessed to the crime,” he added. No details were provided on the suspect’s identity, though Hamas has previously suggested Palestinian collaborators worked with Israel on the assassination. The press conference was held outside Mazen Faqha’s house in Gaza City and attended by his widow and Yahya Sinwar, Hamas’s Gaza chief.  Faqha was shot dead on March 24 near his house in Gaza City.
