Fatah post about synagogue terror attack that killed 5: “Handing out candy in the cities of the West ‎Bank in celebration of the Jerusalem operation”‎

On Nov. 18, 2014, two Arab terrorists, Ghassan and Uday Abu Jamal from East Jerusalem, ‎entered a synagogue in Jerusalem and attacked worshippers with guns, knives and axes, killing 4 ‎worshippers and a police officer. The terrorists were killed in an exchange of fire with Israeli ‎Security Forces that arrived on the scene. ‎
Fatah immediately celebrated the killings, announcing on Facebook that people were "handing out ‎candy":‎

‎ ‎"Handing out candy in the cities of the West Bank in celebration of the Jerusalem operation ‎‎(i.e., the Jerusalem synagogue terror attack), which was carried out to avenge the execution ‎of Martyr (Shahid) Yussuf Al-Ramouni and the violations at the Al-Aqsa Mosque." ‎

Note: Yussuf Al-Ramouni – Arab bus driver from East Jerusalem who was found ‎hanged at a bus terminal in Jerusalem on Nov. 16, 2014. Although an autopsy ‎performed by the Israeli Abu Kabir Forensic Institute and a pathologist chosen by the ‎family of Al-Ramouni revealed no signs of violence, Palestinian media immediately ‎presented the incident as a murder perpetrated by Jewish settlers.‎
