By Staff, Agencies In a new operation against “Israeli” brutality, three Zionists have been injured in a drive-by shooting in the northern West Bank, followed by “Israeli” forces firing back at the vehicle which fled the scene. This comes as tensions in the occupied territories intensify.
The shots were fired from the car at the Tapuah Junction south of Nablus on Sunday, the “Israeli” military said, adding that two of the 'Israelis' sustained serious injuries.
“‘Israeli’ troops returned fire at the vehicle, which fled the scene.
We are searching for the vehicle and are setting up roadblocks in the area,” the apartheid entity’s military said.
Medics said one of the injured “Israelis” was in critical condition and received CPR en route to the hospital and another was in and out of consciousness, while the third sustained light injuries.
“Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu voiced certainty that the 'attackers' would be tracked down quickly.
The operation came hours after “Israeli” forces martyred a Palestinian woman in the southern part of West Bank.
Following the Sunday incident, Palestinian resistance groups lauded the act against “Israeli” occupation forces, stressing that resistance was a “strategic option” to fight against “Israeli” aggression.
In a statement, the Hamas resistance group praised the operation, saying it was a “natural response” to the “Israeli” regime’s aggression against Occupied Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Hamas noted that the message of the operation is clear to the “Israeli” army and officials.
The movement also called on the Palestinian people to intensify their resistance against the “extremist Zionists” who intend to storm Al-Aqsa Holy Mosque.
The Islamic Jihad movement also said the operation was a message from Palestinians to the “Israeli” regime that Al-Quds is “our red line and that desecrating the sanctities will lead to endless Palestinian anger against the regime.”
