A leading figure in the militant Palestinian organization Hamas has admitted that 50 out of the 60 people who were killed during Monday’s protests were members of the violent group.

Salah Bardawil, a senior Hamas official, told Palestinian news outlet Baladna TV that “in the last rounds of confrontations, if 62 people were martyred, Fifty of the martyrs were Hamas and 12 from the people,” before adding “How can Hamas reap the fruits if it pays such an expensive price?

Bardawil insisted that these figures were “official,” according to the Times of Israel. “I am giving you an official figure. 50 of the martyrs in the recent battle were from Hamas,” Bardawil explained.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed that Israeli forces estimated similar numbers of Hamas militants were involved in the riotous protests. “The Hamas spokesperson said today that about 50 of the 60 who were killed are Hamas operatives. We have similar figures,” he tweeted.
