RAMALLAH/GAZA, March 22 (Xinhua) -- Islamic Hamas movement on Saturday urged the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) to halt security cooperation with Israel after the Israeli army killed three militants in the northern West Bank refugee camp of Jenin.
In response to the Israeli raid, Hamas said that "the PNA must immediately sever security cooperation with the Israeli occupation, " adding "the PNA should release all political prisoners and stand to the side of our people, heal their wounds and end their suffering."
Earlier on Saturday, a special Israeli army force targeted a building in Jenin refugee camp where several militants were hiding, including fugitives who are wanted by Israel over involvement in planning attacks on Israel.
Palestinian witnesses and security sources said that Hamza Abu al-Heija, a Hamas militant, was killed. The two other dead militants belong to Islamic Jihad and al-Aqsa Brigades, the armed wing of Fatah Party of President Mahmoud Abbas.
The three militant groups, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah, said in a joint statement that "military actions in the West Bank will be resumed soon and the Palestinian armed resistance against the Israeli occupation will never stop."
