Fireworks in Hebron and Gaza After Four Israelis Killed in Terror Attack
Palestinian residents of Hebron in the West Bank set off fireworks to celebrate a terrorist attack that left four people dead and three others seriously wounded in a Tel Aviv market on Wednesday.
The two Palestinians who carried out the shooting are cousins from Hebron.
Fireworks were also launched in the Gaza Strip, according to Hamas-affiliated media. The Gaza-based Shehab News Agency reported that Palestinians in the Strip handed out sweets after receiving news of the attack.
“Glory and salutations to the Hebronites,” tweeted Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh from Gaza, ending his praises with a victory sign. In a second tweet, he called one of the shooters a “hero.”
