Hamas Claims Responsibility for Fatal Attack at Jerusalem Bus Stop


Hamas claimed responsibility for the Jerusalem bus stop shooting, in which three people were killed, stating that the attackers were members of its military wing, Al-Qassam Brigades.

The shooting in Jerusalem resulted in seven injuries after two attackers, identified by Hamas as siblings, opened fire on a group of people in Jerusalem.

Occurring during a temporary truce between Israel and Hamas, the attack took place amidst ongoing discussions to extend the ceasefire further.

The pause in hostilities was extended under a last-minute agreement, with Egypt revealing that negotiations are underway to prolong the truce.

The assailants were killed by two soldiers and a civilian, as stated by Jerusalem District Commander Doron Turgeman on Thursday.

One victim was pronounced dead at the scene, and two others succumbed to their injuries at Shaare Zedek hospital.

Israeli police provided an update, confirming that the attackers opened fire on civilians at the bus station around 7:40 a.m. local time on Thursday.

The attack site has been sealed off, and additional searches are underway to rule out any additional suspects, according to the Israel Police Spokesperson’s Unit.

Hamas celebrated the attack, attributing it to “a direct response to the unprecedented crimes committed by the occupying forces,” and warning of further assaults across various locations.

Following a meeting with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Netanyahu emphasized the need to address the threat posed by Hamas and its involvement in violent incidents.
