Angry Gaza pays final farewell to Hamas chief assassinated by Israel
Sun Apr 18,11:31 AM ET

Some 200,000 furious Palestinians jammed the streets of Gaza City to pay their last respects to slain Hamas leader Abdelaziz Rantissi, assassinated in an Israeli air strike.

Hundreds of heavily armed fighters from all the main Palestinian nationalist and Islamic movements joined the funeral cortege, unleashing volleys of gunfire into the air, as a top Hamas figure promised a powerful response to Rantissi's killing.

"When the opportunity presents itself, we will deliver a widescale response. It will come," Mahmud al-Zahar told mourners who had gathered in Gaza City's main Al-Omri mosque.

"We have a project of retaliation. It doesn't mean we will respond after every hit, but we will continue retaliating until we get Jerusalem," he said.

"Hamas is not dependent on one or two people, it is a society working for the establishment of a state," Zahar said.
