The Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas terrorist groups hailed Wednesday’s two terrorist attacks in Jerusalem, which killed at least one person and injured more than 20 others.
“The operation in the occupied city of Jerusalem is a natural response to the occupation, its terrorism, and its criminal practices against the defenseless Palestinian people and their holy sites,” said Islamic jihad.
“The operation says to the leaders of the occupation and the leaders of the settlers that none of the policies of your criminal government will protect you from the strikes of our people’s resistance,” the group added.
Hamas spokesman Abd Latif al-Kanou said, “Our people will not remain silent in the face of this, and the outrage Al-Aqsa will explode and spread in all regions.”
