Hamas threatens more terror attacks like the Henkin murder, calling it a “natural response” to Israel’s “crimes”

Headline: “Abu Ubeid: ‘The “Itamar” operation will not be the last’”
“The Al-Qassam Brigades, the Hamas Movement’s military arm, said that the ‘Itamar’ operation (i.e., terrorist attack in which Israelis Naama and Eitam Henkin were murdered) will not be the last operation of the Palestinian resistance. Military Spokesman Abu Ubeid blessed the operation and emphasized that it is a natural response to the occupation’s crimes.”

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.
