Hamas Says Yerushalayim Bus Bomb Shows Commitment To Third Intifada


The Palestinian terror group Hamas held a rally on Thursday in which the leader of the faction in the Gaza Strip said that the recent Yerushalayim bus bombing showed the group’s commitment to pursuing a new Palestinian uprising, or Intifada, NEWSWEEK reports.

Speaking to thousands of supporters in the coastal enclave, Ismail Haniyeh lauded the member of Hamas who detonated an explosive device during Yerushalayim’s rush-hour, leaving at least 21 people wounded on April 18. He called 19-year-old Abdel Hamid Abu Srour’s bomb blast a “heroic action” that the group said it came in response to Israeli crimes against Palestinians.

The Gaza leader said that the bomb blast “shows that Hamas and the sons of Hamas are committed to resistance and determined to pursue the Intifada.. We say to the Zionist occupier that our people can no longer stand the blockade… It is our right to have a port and an airport.” Read more at NEWSWEEK.
