A senior Hamas leader publicly admitted Wednesday that at least “50 members” of the terror organization were killed during clashes with Israeli Defense Forces in Gaza; smashing the United Nations’ claim that the riots were “peaceful protests.”
Hamas organizer Salah Bardawil made the stunning admission while speaking with reporters this week; saying “If 62 people” were killed, then 50 were members of the international terror organization.

“Senior Hamas official sets the record straight on who was killed in last Hamas-orchestrated riots: ‘50 of the 62 martyrs were Hamas’. Take his word for it. This was no peaceful protest,” said a spokesperson for the Israeli Defense Forces.
The revelation comes just one day after US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley blocked a resolution that called for an independent investigation into the “peaceful protests.”
