April 21, 2016 15:48

The father of the Palestinian who died in a Jerusalem bus bombing denied on Thursday that his son was affiliated with the Hamas Islamist group.

Mohammad Abu Srour is the father of Abdel-Hamid Abu Srour.

A pro-Hamas website identified the younger Abu Srour as the Palestinian militant from the occupied West Bank who died from his wounds following a bomb which exploded on an Israeli commuter bus in Jerusalem on Monday.

The pro-Hamas Palestinian Information Center said Abu Srour was from the Aida refugee camp near Bethlehem and said he was a member of the Kassam brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas militant Islamist group.

His father denies this.
