The Islamic Jihad on Friday hailed the anti-occupation shooting carried out by three Palestinian young men at al-Aqsa Mosque and which claimed the lives of two Israeli soldiers.
The Islamic Jihad warned of Israeli intents to use the shootout to step up break-ins at al-Aqsa Mosque and aggressions on the peaceful Muslim worshipers.
The Islamic Jihad said the attack is the natural response to the Israeli break-ins at al-Aqsa, dubbing the presence of Israeli forces at the site on Friday a “dangerous violation.”
“The Palestinian people will never forget the Israeli aggressions on al-Aqsa Mosque and terrorism against the Muslim worshipers and sit-inners during holy Ramadan month,” a statement by the Islamic Jihad read.
The movement said Israel’s closure of al-Aqsa on Friday is a crime and an aggression over which the Palestinians shall never remain mum.
