After learning that a Jew had died in a terrorist attack in Kiryat Arba, near Hebron, on Saturday night, local Palestinians celebrated in Ibn Rushd Square, according to a video circulated on social media.

Im Tirtzu tweeted in response to what was claimed to be a video showing a celebration of the murder: “These are our enemies. This is what they do without a state or an Army. We’ve seen the movie, we’re not interested in the sequel.”

The 50-year-old Israeli killed at the entrance to Kiryat Arba has been identified as Ronen Hanania.

The mass shooting was perpetrated by Muhammad al-Jabari, reportedly a member of a new terrorist faction affiliated with Hamas. He was shot dead by security forces.

Jabari wounded three other people—a medic, who is in serious condition; Hanania’s son; and a Palestinian man.
