In addition, an officer in the Palestinian National Security Forces in Gaza released a video of himself praising Sukkari. In the video, the officer claimed that "al-Aksa is waiting for the revenge of the Palestinian Authority's brave soldiers," arguing that "the brave martyr, Amjad Sukkari, understood this and avenged Palestinian blood."

Amjad Sukkari, a 34-year-old policeman who worked as a bodyguard for the Palestinian attorney general, opened fire on Sunday morning at Focus checkpoint near the Beit El settlement, wounding three IDF soldiers.
The Palestinian gunman, who was shot and killed by troops, posted a message on his Facebook page shortly before the attack, in which he indicated his intention to carry out a terrorist attack.

Following the shooting attack, a new hashtag titled "operation V.I.P" began spreading on Palestinian social media, rapidly becoming very popular.
