Hamas vows revenge after Israeli raid kills 3 militants

April FrancisJul 28, 2018

Simon Wiesenthal Center Associate Dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper said in a statement sent to the Journal, "Palestinian Authority and Hamas brainwashing another generation pays off when a 16 year-old Palestinian attacks an Israeli home leaving one dead and two injured".

The attacker Mohammed Dar Youssef from Kobar was shot dead while the dead Israeli has been named as 31-year-old father-of-two Yotam Ovadia.

The Israeli defense minister has vowed to expand controversial settlement policies in the West Bank, claiming that it is the "best answer to terrorism".

The Palestinian news agency Wafa said three people were arrested. "The rioters hurled large rocks and firebombs and rolled burning tyres at troops, who responded with riot dispersal means", an Israeli army statement said.

The protests also demand a "right of return" for descendants of Palestinian refugees to ancestral homes in what is now Israel.

The army added it was "reinforcing the defence" of Adam and other settlements.

Much of the global community views the settlements as illegal and an obstacle to peace. "When will President Abbas and Palestinian leaders condemn the violence?" he wrote on Twitter.
