Hamas leader Omar Daraghmeh was killed in an Israeli prison as a result of torture, the Palestinian movement said in a statement.

The Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas announced the ‘assassination’ of one of its leaders in the West Bank in Israeli occupation prisons.

Omar Daraghmeh was one of hundreds of Palestinians detained by the Israeli military occupation in recent days, following the Al-Aqsa Flood operation, and the Israeli war on Gaza. 

The movement said in a statement that Daraghmeh was “martyred as a result of the torture he was subjected to in the occupation prisons”, and described his death as an ‘assassination’ by the Israeli government. 

Social media videos showed hundreds of Palestinians in the town of Tubas in the West Bank protesting the death of the top Hamas leader. 

They rejected Israeli claims that Daraghmeh died as a result of a heart attack. 

Israeli occupation authorities announced that they detained about 800 Palestinians after the Al-Aqsa Flood.

They include 500 members from the Hamas movement.
