Hamas hails Jordan Valley shooting as ‘natural response’ to Al-Aqsa clashes
The Hamas terror group praises the deadly shooting in the Jordan Valley, calling it “a natural response to the occupation’s ongoing crimes against Al-Aqsa Mosque and its barbaric aggression against Lebanon and the steadfast Gaza.”
Hamas warns Israel against “continuing its crimes against Al-Aqsa Mosque,” in the statement.
Hamas says the site must remain “purely Islamic, with no place for occupation or [Israeli] sovereignty.”
