Sources in Gaza responded Tuesday morning to the death of a hunger-striking Islamic Jihad terrorist in prison, Kikar Hashabbat reported.

Terrorist Khader Adnan, one of the senior leaders of the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization in Judea and Samaria, was found early Tuesday morning unconscious in his cell at the Nitzan Prison, and was pronounced dead following resuscitation efforts.

A notice from the Hamas terror organization read, "The criminal government of the occupation will pay the price for the elimination of Adnan and its refusal to release him. There is no option other than to persecute her for her crimes."

Hamas spokesman Khazam Qassam told Hamas Radio, "Adnan was executed in cold blood. The Palestinian nation has accustomed us so that a crime like this will not pass without a response which will balance it out."

The "Prisoner's Club" said Tuesday morning that, "Adnan, who went on six hunger strikes over the years until he died today, brought the prisoners' voice to the entire world, and each time succeeded in gaining his freedom, until the occupation decided, this time, to kill him."

According to the Israel Prisons Service, Adnan refused all medical tests and refused medical treatment.

Following his death, sirens sounded in Israeli communities near Gaza, and the IDF later confirmed that three rockets had been fired from Gaza towards Israeli territory.
