Hamas Arrests Palestinian for Taking Down Banner of Iran's Soleimani in Gaza

(Al-Arabiya) Yaghoub Fazeli - Hamas on Thursday arrested Majdi al-Maghribi in Gaza for tearing down a banner of slain Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani. Al-Maghribi had urged Gazans in a Facebook post on Wednesday to remove banners of Soleimani and posted a video of himself tearing down the banner. A man filming the torn banner can be heard describing Soleimani as the "killer of Syrians and Iraqis." Several other Soleimani banners have also been taken down and vandalized. Israeli military spokesman Avichay Adraee commented on Twitter in Arabic, "A question to the people in Gaza: Do you expect Arabs to sympathize with you and your cause when they see you erecting statues of the killers of Syrians, Iraqis, Yemenis and the Lebanese?"
