Fatah in Nablus claims that terror attack killing parents in front of their children is “natural response” to Israel’s “crimes”

Headline: “Nablus branch of Fatah: ‘The Beit Furik operation is a natural response to the occupation’s crimes”
“The Nablus branch of Fatah said that the Beit Furik operation (i.e., terrorist attack in which Israelis Naama and Eitam Henkin were murdered) is a natural response to the occupation’s crimes and its settlers’ rampaging. The Fatah movement held the occupation government fully responsible for any escalation that would be carried out by its forces and groups of extreme settlers who receive a green light from the [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s government to carry out their crimes.
The movement stated in a press release that the Palestinians are protecting themselves, their homes, and their mosques which have been damaged by the settlers’ terror.”

The Henkin murders - Israelis Naama and Eitam Henkin (also an American citizen) were murdered in a shooting attack on Oct. 1, 2015, on the road between Itamar and Elon Moreh in the West Bank. Their four children, aged 9, 7, 4, and 4 months, were also in the car and witnessed the murders, but were not physically injured.
Five suspects in the murder, members of a Hamas terrorist cell, were arrested by Israel and confessed to the murders. The leader of the group, Ragheb Ahmad Muhammad Aliwi, has served time in an Israeli prison for security related crimes.
