Well well well. It turns out that of the 62 Palestinians killed on Monday who were trying to break through the Israeli border fence in order to capture Jewish residents of Israel, 50 of them were Hamas leaders. And three were from the Islamic Jihad:
TIMES OF ISRAEL – A Hamas official on Wednesday acknowledged that 50 of the 62 Palestinians reported killed during Gaza border riots on Monday and Tuesday were members of the Islamist terrorist group, bringing the total number of known members of terror groups among the fatalities up to 53.
“In the last rounds of confrontations, if 62 people were martyred, 50 of them were Hamas,” said Hamas official Salah Bardawil in a television interview.
The Iran-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad had said on Tuesday that three members of its Saraya al-Quds military wing were killed by Israeli forces in Khan Younis.
Here’s the Hamas official explaining it in Arabic:

Mark Levin has already weighed in on this new revelation:
More on the Hamas leader bragging that 50 of those killed in the rioting were members of Hamas. Will the American media apologize to their audiences and the Israelis? Of course not. https://t.co/7KVNRDP3Da

No, they won’t apologize. They are too invested into making Israel look bad during these confrontations! Our media and the worldwide media are a joke!
Here’s how Ben Shapiro characterized the revelation:
Media: OMG THE JEWS ARE INDISCRIMINATELY KILLING PALESTINIANS
Hamas: Actually, 50 of the 62 dead are Hamas members.
Media: SHUT UP, HAMAS, THE JEWS ARE INDISCRIMINATELY KILLING PALESTINIANS
