The Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, on Sunday hailed the “heroic” anti-occupation shooting operation near Ariel settlement in Salfit earlier in the day.
Hamas said in an official statement that the attack came in response to the Israeli crimes against the Palestinians and the latest attacks on Palestinian worshipers at al-Aqsa Mosque.
“This courageous and bold operation affirms that resistance, in all of its forms, is the most powerful and successful option to deter the occupation, foil its plans, and protect and defend our people’s rights and holy sites,” Hamas said.
The Palestinian resistance group saluted the “heroes in the revolutionary West Bank” and stressed that the Israeli occupation will never succeed in undermining the Palestinian people’s determination.
Two Israelis were killed on Sunday morning and two others injured in a Palestinian stabbing and shooting attack near Ariel settlement in the West Bank province of Salfit.
