Hamas and the Islamic Jihad resistance movements in Palestine hailed on Sunday the anti-occupation car-ramming attack carried out by a Palestinian driver in Acre city, in territories occupied in 1948.
Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said such attacks will be always carried out in response to Israel’s crimes and violations against the Palestinians.
“We hold the Israeli occupation responsible for the repercussions of its ongoing racist policies,” said Barhoum.
He called on the Palestinian people, political parties, and institutions to rise up in the face of the Israeli occupation and develop their resistance tools so as to respond to Israel’s simmering terrorism using the most efficient means.
The Islamic Jihad Movement also acclaimed the “heroic attack”, which it said is a legitimate response to the Israeli crimes.
“The Israeli government and its criminal army are to blame for all the fallouts of its terrorist and aggressive policies and measures against the Palestinians,” a statement by the Islamic Jihad read.
A Palestinian driver was shot and injured on Sunday by Israeli forces after he allegedly rammed his car into Israeli soldiers in Acre city, in territories occupied in 1948. Three Israeli soldiers were injured in the alleged anti-occupation car-ramming attack.
