Attackers said to be from PFLP

Palestinian media reports that the two cousins who carried out the attack, Uday and Ghassan Abu Jamal, were members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terror group.

An official for the group is quoted by the Palestinian Ma’an News Agency saying that these attacks need to be better coordinated.

The group was responsible for dozens of attacks in the 1980s and 90s as well as during the Second Intifada, but has mostly fallen silent in the past several years.

There is as of yet no claim of responsibility for the synagogue attack.
