Hamas claims Tel Aviv terrorist as member
Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.
The Hamas terror group says the terrorist who carried out the shooting attack in Tel Aviv, Mutaz Salah al-Khawaja, was a member of its military wing.
Hamas says the attack came as a “natural response” to recent deadly Israeli military raids in the West Bank.
Al-Khawaja was shot dead by police officers and other armed Israelis at the scene of the attack that left three wounded.
