Hamas and Islamic Jihad Palestinian Resistance movements hailed on Thursday a car ramming attack in Al-Quds in which 14 Israelis were injured.
Islamic Jihad said the operation in Al-Quds represents a new phase of confrontation with the Zionist entity that aims at foiling US President Donald Trump’s so-called “Deal of the Century” and defending holy sites.
“The one who carried out the operation knows well what he wants. He targeted group of well-armed soldiers,” the group said in a statement.
The operation comes at a time the Israeli occupation intensifies its raids against Palestinians in West Bank and refugee camps, the Islamic Jihad said stressing that such operations prove that the Palestinian people won’t surrender and will firmly defend its country.
Hamas also hailed the attack, describing it as a “practical response” to the “Deal of the Century.”
Spokesman Hazem Qassem said the operation was part of resistance operations, including a series of demonstrations in the occupied West Bank.
“The resistance acts throughout the West Bank — the clashes between our people from the far south of the West Bank to the north, and the resistance operation in the heart of occupied Jerusalem — are a practical response by our people to Trump’s announcement of the liquidation deal,” Qassem said.
