Terror chief Haniyeh extols West Bank Palestinians for proving they’re ‘no less faithful, steadfast than Gaza brethren’; Islamic Jihad hails ‘natural response’ to Israel aggression
Axar.az reports citing Timesofisrael that the Hamas terror organization on Friday praised the perpetrators of a bombing in the West Bank that claimed the life of a 17-year-old Israeli girl and seriously injured her father and brother.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, and Israeli officials have yet to indicate who could have been behind the deadly attack.
Hamas in a statement said the bomb attack was “proof of the vitality and bravery of the Palestinian people, and of the fact that it will not surrender to the crimes and terrorism of the occupation.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who also serves as defense minister, said he was receiving constant updates on the search effort and would meet soon with the commanders of the country’s security forces.
He said: “Security forces are in pursuit of the vile terrorists. We will reach them. Our long arm will pay them their dues.”
