(JNS.org) Some 10,000 people gathered in the northern Israeli city of Umm al-Fahm to attend the funerals of the three Arab terrorists who killed two Israeli Druze police officers July 14 near the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
The terrorists—Muhammad Ahmed Muhammad Jabarin, 29, Muhammad Hamad Abdel Latif Jabarin, 19, and Muhammad Ahmed Mafdal Jabarin, 19—were all residents of Umm al-Fahm.
Ecstatic crowds set off fireworks, flew Palestinian flags and screamed praises for the “martyrs of Al-Aqsa” (the mosque on the Temple Mount compound) as they carried the bodies of the terrorists to their graves.
The Israel Police held the bodies of the terrorists for almost two weeks after the July 14 attack. Israel’s High Court of Justice ruled July 25 that the bodies must be returned to their families.
