Hamas trumpets ‘heroic’ Beersheba attack; suspect identified

The Hamas terror group praises the stabbing attack in Beersheba that killed at least four Israelis.

“We salute the executor of the heroic operation in occupied Beersheba,” Hamas spokesperson Abd al-Latif al-Qanou tells official Hamas radio.

“The occupation’s crimes shall be met with heroic operations: stabbings, ramming and shooting,” al-Qanou says.

The terror group does not immediately claim the stabber, an Israeli citizen from Hura, as a member, however.

Palestinian media affiliated with Islamic Jihad identifies the stabber as Mohammad Ghaleb Abu al-Qi’an, a former terror convict from Hura.

The Shin Bet says it is investigating the attack.
