(SALEM, Ore.) - Officials in Gaza say the 09 October 2015 assassination attempt against Hisham Salem, a well known Palestinian political resistance leader, was carried out by mercenaries who are affiliated with a Gaza Salafi group.

Salem is the leader of The Sabirin (The Patient) Resistance Movement for the Victory of Palestine, or Hosn by its Arabic acronym, an article by al-Monitor ( explains.

While accompanied by his teenage son in East Shejaiya near the "Nahal Oz" crossing at the Israel Gaza border, Hisham Salem survived the assassination bid when an unidentified person stabbed him in the neck with a knife.

After this incident, he went into a coma and people in the region transferred him to Gaza's Al-Shifa hospital. From there he was transferred to another hospital for surgery.

Following the incident, authorities of various groups, including Hamas and Islamic Jihad visited him in the hospital. Based on the evidence obtained, the incident was the work of mercenaries associated with a Salafi group in Gaza. Investigators say they did locate evidence connecting to the perpetrator or perpetrators.

The Sabirin resistance movement leader was repeatedly threatened by Salafi & Takfiri groups in the Gaza Strip. A few months ago, a bomb was planted near his house which was defused by Hamas security elements.
