Palestinian terror groups vow that the arrests of the two Palestinian suspects in the Elad axe attack will not prevent further violence against Israel.

No group has stepped forward to claim responsibility for the attack, which left three Israelis dead and three others seriously wounded.

“Our Palestinian people and their heroic youth will not stand idly by in the face of the occupation’s crimes and its violations against our Jerusalem holy sites and the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque,” the Hamas terror group says in a statement.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad praises the “heroes” who killed three Israelis in the “settlement of Elad.” Elad lies in internationally recognized Israel, not the West Bank.

“They showed the frailness of this monstrous entity and the weakness of its security apparatus,” says Tariq Izz al-Din, an Islamic Jihad spokesperson.
