Hamas eulogizes terrorists who killed 4 as “heroic Martyrs”

“Hamas eulogized its son, Ibrahim Al-Akari, who carried out the run-over operation (i.e., terror attack by car) near the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem, which led to the occupation authorities’ admission that, as of now, one Israeli had been killed and 14 others injured, some of whom severely. In a press release obtained by [independent Palestinian news agency] Ma'an, the movement [Hamas] said that ‘our heroic Martyr (Shahid) Ibrahim Al-Akari, whose blood watered the soil of occupied Jerusalem, chose to take revenge [in the name of] his people and the sanctity of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem, following [the actions of] heroic Martyrs Abd Al-Rahman Al-Shaloudi, Mutaz Hijazi and those that preceded them.’”

Notes: Ibrahim Al-Akari – Hamas terrorist from East Jerusalem who deliberately ran over people at a light-rail station in Jerusalem on Nov. 5, 2014, killing Jidan Assad, 38, and Shalom Aharon Badani, 17, and injuring at least 13 others. Al-Akari was shot and killed by Israeli police officers who arrived on the scene.

Abd Al-Rahman Al-Shaloudi – On Oct. 22, 2014, Al-Shaloudi drove his car into a light-rail station in Jerusalem, killing three-month-old Israeli-American Haya Zissel-Brown and Karen Mosquera, 22, of Ecuador, and injuring 7 others. He was shot by police while attempting to flee the scene, and later died of his wounds.

Mutaz Hijazi – Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner who attempted to assassinate Rabbi Yehuda Glick, a prominent activist working to assure rights for Jews to visit and pray on the Temple Mount, on Oct. 29, 2014. The assassination attempt took place following a conference on establishing times and places for Jews to pray on the Temple Mount. Glick was seriously wounded in the attack; Hijazi was killed soon afterwards when he opened fire on an Israeli police force that was attempting to arrest him.
