A spokesperson for the Hamas terror group hails the Jerusalem bombing attacks.

“The action conveyed the message to the occupation by saying that our people will stand firm on their land and cling to the path of resistance,” Mohammad Hamada says in a statement.

“The coming days will be intense and more difficult for the enemy. The time has come for the creation of cells that are spread all over Palestine and are ready for a confrontation,” he adds.

One person was killed and at least 18 others were hurt when two explosions targeted two bus stops at entrances of Jerusalem.

There has been no claim of responsibility.
