Islamic Hamas movement hailed on Friday the car run-over attack, where one Palestinian was killed and two Israeli settlers injured south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem.
“The status of growing outrage among our people, including the stabbing and ramming attacks in Jerusalem and the West Bank are a response to storming al-Aqsa Mosque,” Abdulatif al-Qanoua’, Hamas spokesman in Gaza said in a statement.
The Israeli media has earlier reported that two Israelis were injured on Friday afternoon in a suspected West Bank ramming attack outside the settlement of Elazar, south of Bethlehem.
The reports said that a Palestinian car driver was shot and killed by an Israeli police man, adding that two pedestrians; a 17-year-old boy was critically wounded and a 19-year-old woman is in moderate condition.
The Palestinian Authority (PA) Health Ministry in the West Bank said in a press statement on Friday that Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian car driver south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem.
On Thursday, two Palestinian teenagers were shot dead in the old city of Jerusalem after they stabbed an Israeli police officer and moderately wounded him. No one claimed responsibility for the two attacks on Thursday and Friday.
“The endless Israeli organized terror of state and practices in the city of Jerusalem and in the West Bank will blow up the entire area again in the face of the Zionist occupation and its settlers,” said al-Qanoua’.
Meanwhile, Hamas said in another press statement that “the heroic actions that our martyrs carry out in the West Bank and Jerusalem reiterates to the enemy that the choice of resistance is present against those who violate the rights of our people.”
“The children of our hero people and the men of resistance will go on with a determination that will not be broken and will continue until either victory or martyrdom,” said the statement.
