This morning, Stand for Israel told you of the latest terrorist attack in the Holy Land - a vehicular attack that left one IDF soldier dead and another wounded. Now, The Jerusalem Post reports, Hamas has commented on the tragedy, praising the terrorist's vile actions and calling them "heroic":
“We bless this heroic ramming attack at the Ofra intersection near Ramallah, which is a response to the continued crimes of the Zionist occupation at the expense of our people,” said Hamas spokesman Abdul-Latif Qanou.
The motorist suspected of intentionally plowing into the victims was detained by Israeli authorities at the scene.
Soon after the assault, another Hamas spokesperson, Hazem Qassim, said that terror attacks against Jewish targets would continue, declaring that the use of violence "will only end with freedom."
"Once again, the Jerusalem Intifada proves that it isn't a passing event, but rather a Palestinian decision to continue the struggle until freedom from occupation."
"There is no safety for the occupation army or settlers as long as they deny our rights, occupy our land, and attack our people and its holy sites," he added.
