West Bank shootings are in reaction to Israeli invasions into al-Aqsa
(MENAFN) According to a Hamas spokesman, the shooting operations in several locations of the West Bank are in retaliation to Israeli settlers' invasions into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
“Successive shooting operations in various parts of the West Bank, the latest in Nablus and Jenin, is in line with an escalating popular revolution in response to the storming of al-Aqsa and the provocations of settlers today,” Abd al-Latif al-Qanou asserted in a statement on Sunday.
He also praised a group of resistance fighters known as Areen al-Usood (The Lion's Den) for carrying out retaliation strikes against Israeli soldiers and settlers in Nablus, and he asked for further help for the West Bank militants.
On Sunday, an Israeli settler was allegedly injured in a Palestinian shooting operation on a route between Beit Furik and the Elon Moreh settlement on the outskirts of Nablus.
Before fleeing the area, Palestinian resistance members opened fire on an Israeli bus driving on the same route. Both the automobile and the bus were damaged.
Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qassem praised the strikes, saying the Palestinian people's struggle will continue until their objectives are met.
Later that day, Israeli media claimed that an Israeli soldier was wounded in the leg on a route between the Itamar settlement and the military's Samaria regional brigade base.
