Hamas has charged the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) with trying to foil the Gaza people's joy over the Eidul Fitr with the crime committed in northern Gaza on the first day of the Eid.

Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, told the PIC on Sunday that the "Zionist crime" of shelling and killing two Palestinians reflected the "Zionist terrorist mentality and the spirit of revenge against civilians".

The IOA is exploiting the Arab silence and the former PA chief Mahmoud Abbas's acquiescence to attend a tripartite meeting with American president Barack Obama and Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu in New York on Tuesday to commit this crime, the spokesman elaborated.

He charged that the IOA is daily proving that it does not respect the sanctity of religious occasions, describing such an attitude as "state terrorism".

Another Hamas spokesman Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri urged the world community in a similar statement to the PIC on Sunday to assume its responsibility against such "Zionist crimes".

He also held the IOA fully responsible for consequences of such "barbaric crimes".

The Israeli occupation forces on Sunday morning shelled northern Gaza areas killing two resistance fighters and wounding four civilians.

For its part, the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, asserted that it would continue along the path of martyrs until liberation of the occupied Palestinian lands.

It added in a statement on the occasion of the Eid on Sunday that the martyrs would continue to "guide us" along the road of sacrifice.

The armed wing called for tolerance and for restoration of national unity.
