50 of 61 Were Hamas Members

I've Been Thinking:
Monday was a bloody day on the Gaza border. 61 Palestinians died.
On Wednesday senior Hamas official Salah Bardawil announced to Baladana TV, an official Hamas network, that 50 of the 61 dead were members of Hamas. In an interview Bardawil said that they were part of the Hamas ranks and that he was proud of their actions and their deaths. He said that they were fighting Israel and died as warriors and martyrs.
If that is correct - and there is no reason to dispute his claim, they were official members of a terror group, not innocents at the border.
That means that these 50 "protesters" were actually part of Hamas operations fighting against Israel. That is significant.
The remaining 11 may be connected to any number of other, anti-Israel, terror groups. Or they may have been simple rioters.
