Pro-Iran group in Gaza says IDF killed one of its members

A pro-Iranian armed group in the Gaza Strip says that the Palestinian man reported killed by IDF fire today was one of its operatives.

Harakat al-Sabireen, a splinter group which broke away from Islamic Jihad and has symbols similar to that of Hezbollah, issued a statement saying 27-year-old Ahmed Sharif al-Sarhi was a leader of one of its armed group, which was outlawed by Hamas earlier this year.

The group says that this was not the first time Israel attempted to kill al-Sarhi.

Hamas in July banned the Harakat al-Sabireen, claiming the faction which reportedly has close ties with Iran has been trying to disseminate Shi’ite ideology, Al Monitor reported.
