On the morning of November 18, five Israelis were killed and seven injured when terrorists carried out a massacre during the morning prayer in a synagogue in Har Nof, Jerusalem. This savage attack is the most recent in the latest wave of violence and terrorism in Israel. In the past month, ten Israelis were murdered in terror attacks, and Hamas has been congratulating the attackers. This morning, members of the terrorist organization praised the attackers, describing them as heros.
Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, is one of many who praised the attack, which in his words is a natural reaction to the “occupation”. In a Facebook post, he called to continue such attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers.

Husam Badran, responsible for Hamas’ foreign relations, described the attack a “quality action”. In another post, he wrote: “A message to all members of national security in the West Bank. You are trained and you have the weapons and the ability to act. There is no doubt that there are many patriots amongst you. Now, you can see the young people of the West Bank are fighting without weapons. Some of you can make a significant change in the resistance. Turn your weapons against your enemies and ours. Write your names in the true list of honor.”
