Palestinian support for the deadly terrorist shooting carried out two weeks ago in Jerusalem has been horrifying. Now, The Times of Israel's Stuart Winer reports, the IDF has cracked down on this appalling sentiment by raiding a Jerusalem-area printer after it made posters supporting the terrorist:
Soldiers broke open the press in the central West Bank town of a-Ram and seized printing equipment as well as “posters and inciting material,” the IDF said in a statement.
Among the material was posters praising Mesbah Abu Sabih, a well-known Hamas activist who killed a pedestrian and a policeman during a shooting spree in Jerusalem on October 9, before being killed in a shootout with cops.
Abu Sabih, a 39-year-old resident of Silwan in East Jerusalem, killed police First Sergeant Yosef Kirma, 29, and a former Knesset worker Levana Malihi, 60, during the attack near Jerusalem’s Ammunition Hill. Six other people were injured in the incident.
The print shop had produced posters praising Sabih, some of which were posted at his parents’ home and at other “centers of incitement in the Binyamin region” the IDF noted, using the biblical name for an area in the central West Bank.
